Expressive and Botanical Florals
Flowers are my favorite subject and I will never tire of painting them!
Intuitive painting requires the artist to step aside and allow paint, paper, and inspiration to flow!
I am a former textile designer ( rug designer). I love to create paintings that involve the intricate connections of shape, color, and texture.
Working in the medium of Color Pencil is very slow. You have to enjoy the process!! I often create the shadows on leaves and flowers with Color Pencil and then apply paint on top.
I started in art school in the Botanical watercolor program and now I have come back to this very realistic and detailed method of painting.
Before a painting is worthy of a frame it have to go through many sketches. This requires patience and eventually, if you take the time you will end up with a wonderful finished painting.
Most of these images are created with painted papers. The vases are created with Yupo paper.
An artistic combination of art and letters!
