    Gerrymandering Consciousness

    Gallery Wrap 24 X 36”

    Where The Red Fern Grows

    Gallery Wrap 18 X 24”

    As I was looking at the ferns growing in my garden I remembered the book Where The Red Ferns Grow.  I thought about printing a few of the fern branches in red paint.  Liking the result I added a few touches of gold leaf.

    Poppy Day

    Gallery Wrap 16 X 20”

    Acrylic Collage

    Poppies remind me of Poppy Day which was observed in my elementary school.  Mother would give me a dime to buy a red paper poppy. The red poppy is a symbol of all the soldiers who sacrificed their lives since World War One.  National poppy day in 2019 will be November 11th.

    Angel of Music

    Gallery Wrap 11 x 14”

    Acrylic Collage on cradle board

    “I work intuitively directly on the substrate. There are no plans other than I think I will paint an angel. After a few happy accidents the result is a composition I like. I am pleased with the curved lines of the background and in the curved lines in wings, clothing and face.”

  • In Flander’s Field – Betty Grummer

    $450.00

    In Flander’s Field

    Gallery Wrap 16 x 20”

    Acrylic Collage

    Throughout history, after a major war, red poppies seem to pop up in the battlefields and on soldier’s graves.  Poppy seeds lay dormant in the soil and when the soil is heavily turned or dug up it causes them to sprout. The most detailed of this event took place in WWI “In Flanders Field”, Belgium.  In the craters where bombs fell and on the mounds of rubble, “Poppies Galore” bloomed everywhere.  The heavily churned earth and the high concentration of lime from the limestone buildings made the perfect catalyst for the poppies to grow.

  • Poppies – Betty Grummer

    $200.00

    Poppies

    Gallery Wrap 9 x 12”

    Acrylic Collage on cradle board

    “Once I began painting these poppies I got more and more ideas of how to paint them differently. This time I wanted to paint a smaller substrate of poppies growing with the wind twisting and turning their fragile little stems and leaves. The composition became a picture of curves,  gold leaf and the color red.”

    Imagination is imperative. It takes my husband back to a day of an encounter with a meteor and the expression “Save the dinosaurs!” Let’s face it, the rouge goes beyond consciousness.
