Art: Rhododendrons on Presidents Hill ACEO by Artist The Lone Beader
Beauty can be found in your own backyard, or like in my case, out on your deck!

Now that summer has arrived in Quincy, Massachusetts, I've been spending a lot of time out on my deck. There, I noticed that some beautiful rhododendrons were spilling over the side of the fence just above the parking lot of my condo building. So, for the first time ever, I brought all my supplies outside and tried to paint what I saw.

This artist trading card consists of bead-embroidered rhododendrons that were stitched onto painted canvas paper. The finished piece was then mounted onto mat board. I used fuschia Japanese size 15 glass seed beads for the flowers.

This beaded art card is signed & dated, and all artist information is hand-written on the back to provide authenticity.

This piece is currently part of a private collection.
