The present work is a playful and colorful example of the mixed media artworks of David Barnett. The image is dominated by a field of brightly colored flowers, each petal and leaf a soft, painterly form that merge and lean together as one. Barnett achieved this through the use of a wet-on-wet technique, which allows the pigments of the watercolors to bleed each into the next and to become increasingly abstract. 12 x 18 inches, artwork Signed lower right Framed to conservation standards using archival materials including 100 percent rag matting with a 1/4-inch bevel and glazing to protect from UV damage; housed in a water gilded reverse ogee moulding.
