“Hidden Beauty” is a magical piece because this Hibiscus had it’s perfect place to bloom hidden under a fence protecting the flower from the harsh sun rays.
Blooming under a fence this flower stayed brilliantly red for weeks on hand. It had the right amount of sunlight and shade. The way the Hibiscus so gently conforms to the top of the fence resting it’s pedals on the wooden fence. The lush leaves all around the Hibiscus gives us a close up look at the organic beauty of nature at any given moment. Rich in color and situated in the right place gave me the perfect opportunity to create the original pastel painting “Hidden Beauty”.
Since there is only one original I wanted to allow my art to reach other forms. Using the creative technology we have today I used the digital process combined with the traditional painting techniques to create this new image of “Hidden Beauty”. Using many layers of pastel I painted the flower and leaves to give this painting a three dimensional feeling of the realism of nature. This “Hidden Beauty” original art is surrounded with hand-rubbed dark wooden frame with a delicate light gold edging on the inside and outside edges encased with museum glass. Let me know if you feel this art is for you!
