This blue dahlia painting has been a labor of love taking several weeks to complete. All of the shapes of the petals were first formed in string following which the work was painted. The effect is that if you stand back, it looks like a normal flat painting but when you approach, the textured string art jumps out at you. It’s a wonderful optical illusion and this painting will be a conversation piece for sure.
