Between finishing up a few gallery commissions, and my husband recently having major back surgery, not many new available paintings have come out of the studio in the last month. It was deeply satisfying then, when this piece basically painted itself. As my fellow artists know, it doesn’t always happen that way!
I don’t often paint still life scenes, although early in my painting days (2009-2011) I painted a LOT of pears! So this was really exciting to depict flowers with a new approach. Each of the paintings below began with a foundation of bright primary colors. As the subsequent layers were added, some of the bright backgrounds and other layers were allowed to show through.
The two pink paintings would make great companions, as would the two green flowers. (The pinks appear to not have the same colored background, but that’s a photo issue; they’re actually extremely compatible.)
I hope you enjoy this series; I’d love to hear what you think about them. Thanks for following me!
