BLOOM

Stacy Pearson's avatar Stacy Pearson

BLOOM embodies my unending awe in the beauty of the outdoors. Drawn with only a drafting pencil, each flower is intended to inspire wonder, joy, and admiration of nature for viewers. I draw from what I find around me in my yard, on the beach, in bouquets I have seen or insects that visit my garden. Buzzing around the wreath and hiding within it amidst gold leaf accents will be "fun to find" bees, lady bugs, and butterflies. I want this piece to be exciting for all ages. I welcome viewers to get lost in a single bloom. I draw in hyper detail to educate myself on each subject, and to encourage a tech driven society to change their point of view and embrace what's beneath their feet and in our world. The details: Drafting pencil drawing, liquid gold leaf painted to be painted into the negative spaces within the wreath. Paper 30" x 22", framed 35" x 45". Frame will be hand made, rustic, natural, drawing will be behind glass.
