Flower paintings! New in 2022!
I've been photographing flowers and looking at flower paintings for several years now and now they're jumping right out of the studio!
I'm very excited to embark on what feels like a very new body of work in exciting new directions.
It all started when I accidentally cut down a large stalk of lovely pink roses in my garden. Oh no!!!! I snipped them into two vases and painted them from life over a week. Painting them from direct observation (rather than from photography) was an exciting process and the fact that my model stayed still for days was a big improvement over life drawing models and plein air painting with their rapidly changing natural light conditions.
