The Rudbeckia and Sunflower collage is becoming richer and more complex.
Having amassed enough flowers, I have begun work on the first Rudbeckia collage.
Another Rudbeckia to add to the collages of my Autumn garden.
These deep red Rudbeckias are a particular favourite of mine. I have pinned them on the background fabric just to see how they work together.
Dye-work for another collage. These painterly backgrounds add greatly to the richness and sense of depth in the final collage.
Just in time for the exhibition at Salthouse 2 in St Ives, a new textile collage of the cliffs of Cornwall and the gorgeous flowers that grow among the granite. More details http://amandarichardsonartist.com/content/cliff-top-honeysuckle-and-heather
Framing is always an interesting challenge. It needs both to work with and enhance the art, and it is also the bridge between art and the space in which it is to hang. The accepted style in Cornwall, which is a centre for the arts, is very minimal white on white. Here I have chosen a lime waxed molding both immediately around the oil painting and framing the whole. Between is a white painted board. I do like this clean but finished look.
A new video, explaining the link between the art of the garden and the art created in the garden.
