“Petal Pushers”

12” x 16” - The water is painted using layers of acrylic gels to create a “faux” encaustic. The Mallard couple was swimming in a pond at the world famous Keukenhof Gardens in Holland. These gardens are only open for a few months every year to showcase bulbs of all types in acres of gardens. When I was there, cherry trees were at their peak along with millions of bulbous plants, and the petals were strewn all over the water, hence the genesis of “petal pushers”. The patterns of the petals on the multi-hued water as the Mallards drifted along just begged to be painted.
