I have always admired artists who do interior paintings. Finally, I found a composition in my home that seemed to work. My pot of tulips on the window sill were casting long shadows on the white chair next to it.
I liked the fresh brushwork and the abstract shapes in this painting
I like painting flowers because I love the vibrant colors and I can make the shapes whatever I want them to be. Most of my flower paintings are free of detail and stress. I almost feel like I am playing when I paint them. The next time you are close to tearing your hair out, I highly recommend, step back and take a deep breath.....and work on a flower painting!
A native to coastal Brazil, the bougainvillea was discovered in 1768 in Rio de Janeiro by French naturalist Dr. Philibert Commerçon (also sometimes spelled Commerson). The plant is named after his close friend and ship’s admiral Louis-Antoine de Bougainville, who commanded the ship La Boudeuse that sailed around the world between 1766-1769, and in which Commerçon was a passenger.
It certainly speaks to tropical Florida, although it is covered in thorns.
This scene was requested by a client who longs for her memories of a Key West vacation.
