Life is simple. Small purple flowers from my potted garden. Centered and focus. Simple elegance.
This painting is on hold until my exhibit in January 2019.
A gift from a woman for drawing lessons to her daughter.
Flowers fade but a painting last.
I was at magazine store when a man gave his rose to me. He grows them in his garden and had several on the counter while he was looking through magazines. He offered me one of the roses but wanted to guess which one I would take. He was right.
With this painting I was working with simple color forms. Just a hint of light or shadow. No rendering.
A miniature red rose in my very old coffee cup.
New works yet small, strictly experimental. There is a similarity among all 4 pieces…a greenish background. Pink against green in “Pink Dianthus” is one of my fav. Analogous greens as in the “Lumpy Pear” and “Yellow Daffodil”. And complementary colors of reddish and greenish as in the “Apple and Tangerine”.
