"Winter Bouquet", original oil painting, 6" X 6", unframed
Everyone who knows me, knows I don't often paint flowers. They have complicated structures and I sometimes have difficulty simplifying them. So, although I am happy with this one, it's not necessarily because it's a floral painting, but because of the punch of light! The reference was great and I keyed in on a small portion of it to get the composition I wanted, then slapped the paint on. This one did not work for me until I changed from a white vase to blue. Don't you just love the sparkle of complements??!
