Black Acrylic and Embedded Poison Ivy on Canvas.This painting started last summer when I found out I am allergic to poison ivy…the hard way. I pulled up the vine and let it dry out. Embedded it with latex and acrylic laquers then painted over it with my watercolor technique. At first, the painting was of a pretty field of flower..but it did not seem right to me. So I let the painting become a new entity. It is an ode to the ivy..but it also speaks of heart ache, heart break, fertility, feminine energy, nature and grounding.
