Christmas Wreaths

Sometimes the best way to approach a problem is to think... inside the wreath. I added a 5in x 5in painting inside the wreath and painted bronze/patina to enhance the texture of natural branches. 

The story started with the Festival of Wreaths call from The Brush Art Gallery, I had planned three art wreaths but I ended up with a whole series of "wreath inspired" works and installations using driftwood and other found objects - some of them found in an old box of Christmas decorations.
