Frozen in Time Art

by Elizabeth Smith

Dimensional botanicals on a CLEAR GLASS SURFACE so all the negative space is translucent even though it is photographed on a white surface to better show the color and detail.

I love to gather the beautiful natural elements found here in the North Georgia mountains and incorporating them into the wall art and table centerpieces that I create. I use real leaves and flowers from a wide variety of trees like Japanese Maples, Cherry Blossom trees, Dogwoods and Oak trees and make pictures of individual trees or landscape scenes. I accent the pictures with sparkly mica , quartz and wood discs which are all indigenous to this area. I seek out the wild grasses and flowers that grow in meadows or the side of the street! and I create pictures of flower bouquets or meadow scenes with these. So all the inspiration as well as the material in my artwork is from the nature all around us!

Artist Profile

Wedding bouquet preservation with this artwork is both unique and beautiful!

I am relatively new to the art world having spent my entire working career in some form of business endeavor the longest of which was in the Health Club business either selling personal training programs and managing the Training staff and or implementing training programs myself for a wide variety of clientele.
In the Fall of 2017 I started noticing a very common mineral called Mica in tones of gold, bronze, rose and purple all over the ground where I lived and suddenly my eyes were fully opened to really seeing all the wild flowers and grasses and colorful leaves and gorgeous trees all around me and along with the mica I really wanted to create....something. It was equally important to capture and preserve the actual subject matter: to gather a wide variety of wildflowers, grasses, leaves, twigs, moss, mica, quarts and pebbles and to then create images of individual trees, meadow or landscape scenes. Curtain tassels and woven belts make fantastic and unusual trees with intricate roots, trunks and branches to which I add a variety of natural and skeleton leaves.Touches of acrylic paint on the blossoms and stems enhance and preserve the vibrant colors of the flowers and some of the leaves. 
Everything is arranged in a frame on a clear glass surface and then encapsulated and protected in a UV resistant epoxy resin for a glossy, tough coat. The original artwork is very dimensional. When seen from the side the flowers and trees look like they are coming out of water and the negative space within the wall art remains translucent.
