1-   The yellow center section is plywood approximately 0.5 inches thick.  This part is painted with enamel paint applied by spraying and by artist brushes and is attached to the piece using nuts and bolts.
2-   The petal area of the blossom is shaped plywood.   Raised edges have been made using synthetic materials. This area has been painted using spray enamel paint and by air-brushing with enamel paint.

The entire piece has been coated with a gloss clear-coat.
The photo above shows the painting and frame from the back.  The photo shows the artist's signature and the "picture-wire" that is used to hang the piece in the traditional manner.

The process for making the cutout painting:

A 1/2" thick piece of high quality plywood was shaped into a 23" x 15" outline of a flower blossom. Raised edges were sculpted using synthetic wood materials.  The plywood cutout was sealed, coated with primer and sanded for a smooth surface. The back side of the plywood has picture wire attached to a metal piece.

The artwork has been signed on the back.
