rat-a-tat mystery

a bold and lively painting using my favourite pale cadmium red shade..... I have made use of yellowed pages from old storybooks, collaged together to create a new surface for painting. All torn edges, tears and marks are intentional. A lovely composition with a central female figure dressed in a patterned frock. Tiny houses, feathery shapes and more.... A timeless yet contemporary folk art feel to this work.

The whole collage has been machine stitched on to a backing of white paper - adding a little extra texture and interest. Vintage buttons add a further dimension and a hint of nostalgia....Signed on reverse...

Will come to you carefully packaged with backing boards.

This work should be framed behind glass - comes unframed.

Artwork measures approx: 31.5 x 21.5cm

many thanks!
