Fern, Quotables; Poppy, Thistle, Snap Dragon, and Sour Grass

12 x 9
venetian plaster, celluclay, found fern, wax, resin on wood
For Mixed Media.  Use multiple media and let the process guide you.  I began with the Venetian Plaster on wood.  I them added the celluclay to the edges creating a berm.  After the celluclay was dry I added the fern and the wax.  I wanted to see how wax and resin reacted so I decided to pour resin on top.  All of the materials are in the natural state.  I really like the play of textures and subtle colors and tones in the piece.
