A new painting I bought

Here is a painting I bought recently. I rarely buy original art (I don't have the space for it yet), but this one I had to have. I post two different photos of it because parts of it are made of metal plate, and reacts to different light in different ways. It is a very bold and very cool picture. It is 70x90 centimeters.

Hello Eolake!
Just thought I would drop in to say hello, still up to my eyes in it with work, but hope to be out of the fray soon!
What an interesting painting!
If it has copper inlay, is it painted on board? I haven`t seen one like this before, so I am curious!
Good to see you blogging now, blogging is good fun!
I will email you when I get free of all this backlog!
But will visit again soon!

It is copper inlay. And the center of the flower is some silvery metal.

I'd love to do stuff like this one day, really play with the materials.

Oh, and the copper was eroded in places, probably with water, before it was varnished. Smart move.
