I missed Friday Flowers yesterday but they will be back next week I'm not done yet :)
If you missed last week's FRIDAY FLOWERS you can see the Happy Sunflowers and the "WATCH" Cat HERE :)
I wanted to share with you one of my pieces of Artwork that I have hanging in a local business right now.

"Integrate My Circuits" (4' x 5')
I love how the spotlights bounce off this piece creating a powerful reflective light from the foils and gold leaf.
Here is the description of this piece that I wrote for my Etsy posting :)
This artwork is a swirl of connectedness. Layers of multi coloured paper, vivid acrylics and electronic components all come together in an ensemble piece.
I love to place everyday objects in my artwork. This time it is electronic components thanks to my Hubby the Engineer. Yes, who would have thought an Engineer and an Artist could be compatible??
The playful movement of the acrylic paint connecting the components, overlapping the many textural papers, brings to mind the connectedness we all need, desire and cherish in our lives and on this planet.
"Integrate My Circuits" starts, like so many of my pieces, first with the strong textural layer of gesso. Next I placed a C.D. in the centre (corny I know!) as they were constantly arriving in the mail a few years ago and I knew I would use it one day, maybe not in the way it was intended! Then the multi layers of coloured paper (symbolic of office?) Next the randomness of the electronic components plus the acrylic paint trying to link it all together.
"Integrate MY Circuits" is created on a 60 x 48 unframed canvas with wrapped sides.
THIS PIECE CONTAINS SHARP OBJECTS.
"Integrate MY Circuits" is an original work of art, it is signed on the front and back, this art piece has not been copied or reproduced in any way.
This was such a fun piece to create, I love working big, I love working with found objects, I love using mixed media and I love finding a way to make the connections in my work.
I hope you enjoyed this :)
Have a Lovely Weekend :)
Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.
