Sweet William original painting by Polly Jones

11" by 14" acrylic and mixed media collage on gallery wrapped canvas. SOLD

I've used some tissue paper as a collage element in the upper top background. I repainted the pattern on top of the paper. I have this flower known as Sweet William (also dianthus and also pinks) growing in pots outside. They are so hardy that they can survive the harsh winter around here. I have known a couple of Williams but they were definitely not what you would call sweet.

I've quickly looked through your blog and I just love everything you do! Have you ever thought of doing some posts on how to paint with acrylic? I've always wanted to learn! I've never really liked collage but one this sweet williams is one of my favorites so I was shocked to see that has some collage going on it. Now I want to learn collage. Give us some technique Polly!!! Can you tell I'm starved for artist camaraderie which is non-existent in my little town :)
