Artist: Barbara Rizza Mellin
About the Artwork: Pink peonies grow vertically among blue/green leaves on this garden branch. Rather than drawing in the individual petals of the peony flower, I create the petals by leaving spaces with no color—which by default—provide the outlines of their characteristic, lush shape. Float mounted to show deckled edges of paper. Signed and red chop.
Media: Sumi ink & Chinese watercolor on handmade Nujabi paper
Dimensions: Frame size: 24” wide by 36” tall
Framed: Yes. See photo.
