20" x 30" - acrylic on canvas - $400
It has been a long time since I have painted any flowers. At one pointed I painted lots of tulips, singly or in small groupings. I loved how they looked once they were open in the latter stages of their short but expressive lives.
This new painting may be a brief foray into that subject realm, or may usher in a renewed interest. Whatever, the subject, a detail from a larger flower garden with hollyhocks, called to me and I decided to respond. I didn't exaggerate the palette or shape of the flowers and leaves but this time just enjoyed painting a semi naturalistic version of a slice-of-life-detail from a hollyhock garden.
Have a wonderful weekend.
