As handsome as it is steadfast, this 22" boho flower sculpture is calming and colorful, yet decisively rugged enough to easily withstand everyday abuse.
Flower Title: ONCE IN A GARDEN
- 22" diameter; 3" deep.
- Indoor/Outdoor display.
- Ready to hang with exterior heavy duty wire attached.
- Exterior hardware, paint, primer and sealants.
As with all my weather-defying flowers, each component is individually crafted and finished to become an uncommonly robust - and colorful - part of the whole. Barn wood was cut into leafy petals, routed and sanded for smooth edges, the protected with two coats of premium exterior primer. The petals were then colored with deep sage green then feathered with rich hot pink (Behr Haitian Flower) and and buttercream (Valspar Duramax Lamplight).
These colors create a subtle backdrop for the metal work, which is highlighted with touches of buttercream yellow, sage green, hot pink and turquoise. The metal for this flower comes from salvaged metal cans, several large soup cans, spray paint cans, a baking mold and beverage can. Each piece is individually hand cut, hand painted or twisted to create a unique - and enduring - artistic piece.
"This piece is absolutely gorgeous!!!! Everyone who comes into my condo loves it. The artist was wonderful. She worked with me to get the colors exact to match my decor." - Terri W., Madeira Beach, FL
