New Series: Flowers with a twist!!

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.)

Pink Poinsettia, 20″ x 16″ acrylic on canvas. Available.
Pink Rose, 20″ x 16 acrylic on canvas. Available.
Green Mum, 24″ x 20″ acrylic on canvas. Available.
Green Hydrangea, 24″ x 20″ acrylic on canvas. Available.
Single Tulip, 20″ x 16″ acrylic on canvas. Available.

I hope you enjoy this series; I’d love to hear what you think about them. Thanks for following me!

Pink again.

This tree is on a corner we pass on the way to LaFontsee Galleries (where I am represented in Grand Rapids and Douglas). I’m so glad I was able to capture a photo of it.

I don’t know how many expressions will follow before I have fulfilled this … this thing that has overtaken me this spring. Maybe once the blossoms have all fallen?

The white blossoms on the dogwood trees in our yard are still hanging on. The leaves are starting to crowd them out though. Oh, how I love the delicate dogwood blossoms.
