I really enjoy collage painting and have used it to create meaningful presents. This was a Sunflower given to my parents in thanks for their help (emotional, financial, physical) with our wedding. It has words included underneath the paint including “love, support, family” as well as gold leaf on top. In addition, I included a letter adhered to the canvas prior to painting so my love, gratitude, and thoughts will always be with them. Collage on 11×14″ canvas, 2010.
