Colorful spring flowers are showcased in wool painting, “Wildflowers”. A softly colored backdrop allows the hues of the flowers and leaves to stand out. Sturdy green stalks grow upwards from the soil and are crowned with sprays composed of small, individual flowers. The tiny blossoms are varied in color and blend together to form the lovely mixture topping each stem. The dark green leaves conceal some stalks and let others show through. The wool fibers add texture to the flowers and stems provide a component not seen in traditional pictures. The wool painting “Wildflowers” would be a delightful addition to any room in your home and is sure to draw the attention of your guests. This beautiful flower artwork would also make a thoughtful gift for an art admirer or a lover of flowers and nature.
The wool painting “Wildflowers” is an original artwork. Painting size: 14 x 11 inches (35.6 x 27.9 cm).

I also offer different frames and can switch to the frame of your choice.
You can also buy the wool painting as is, without frame and glass. To keep the painting safe during shipping, a plexiglass cover will be used to protect the fibers. You can then use the frame of your choice to display the image.
To create my paintings, I use a unique technique called “Wool Painting”, also known as “Wool Watercolor”. All of my paintings are made from 100% Merino sheep’s wool by hand placing fine wool fibers layer by layer on the back of the picture frame, covered with glass and inserted into the frame. This process does not use any glue, needle, water, or paint.
Wool paintings carry special warmth and energy as wool is a natural, living material that keeps the mood and warmth of artist’s hands. Wool paintings have useful properties: they relax, soothe, and calm as the viewer pleasantly examines them. A photo of a wool painting does not convey all that can be felt upon close and detailed examination. By owning such painting, you can ask your guests the mysterious question of what material is it made of. They will generally be indecisive on if it is painted in oil or with watercolor, but decidedly delighted when they learn it is natural sheep’s fiber. Wool painting is always a stylish decoration and original gift. It creates an atmosphere of magic and fills your home with comfort.
