Acrylic paint, origami and tea papers on gallery wrapped canvas. Beautifully painted sides, so no need to frame! Scroll down a little more to see the full photo of the painting.

Against a calming green background, large dogwood blossoms pop out of the canvas. They almost glow! Iridescent pearl paint gives the petals a shimmering quality. Magical dewlike pearls of origami drift down the painting giving you a sense of quiet peace.

The Japanese calligraphy is an old haiku that says:

This dewlike world,
Indeed fleeting like dew;
Yet, yet..

It is also inscribed on the back of the painting so you will never lose the calligraphy’s translation.

Bring a sense of stillness and peace to your home, work place or waiting room. The 24×30 dimension is perfect for a wall space that needs a medium-sized piece of art.
