Fall Abundance!

"Fall Abundance"
Oil On Linen Panel 16x20
Fresh off the easel! This was a fun piece to paint. Last week I was teaching class and to my surprise this arrangement showed up at the studio! Isn't it amazing how flowers REALLY do make you feel good!? :) I was so inspired by this wonderful surprise that I spent the next 2 days painting them.
The arrangement had so much beautiful movement in it that I cared more about capturing that than anything else. It was almost an explosion of warm colors. I'm sure it's easy to believe when looking at this piece, but I did not use any blue. I think the coolest color I used was magenta, maybe viridian. If you're wondering where this stunning arrangement came from, it was one of the finest florists we have in the Valley 'Camrose Hill'. They are quite the artists themselves!

This is truly a masterpiece!

It is so painterly and engaging. You have been given such a"gift" to paint and you are a gift to all of us who are so lucky to have you in our lives.
