A Periodic Journal of an Artist Living Off Grid in the Colorado High Country by Pattie Wall
18” x 24” (big) oil on canvas board
The news is so full of woe and funk, I thought it would be uplifting to paint some flowers. Found this at the bottom of my stack of “to be painted” photos.
Has a nice early 1900s feeling, or flavor.
Pattie this does have a vintage feel to it - I love it!
At the bottom huh? Well I really like this one, and envy the possibilities as you work your way up the pile. Great colour combo.
I love this skewwiff composition, it really focuses attention on the flowers. Brilliant!
Pattie...I'm glad I'm back!!! Your photos are GREAT and this IS a "cheer up" painting... Great colors and great "look"...Funny... I never gave much thought to the forshortening effect on flowers but you've mastered it!!I'll be back sooner next time!!
This is 50 kinds of gorgeous - Wow!!! Pattie, I bow down.
Thanks Camille, Vern, Mark, Sharon and Marian. I don't paint flowers often, and I took the challenge on the background, too. I think it works - and I like the colors together! As always, your visit is appreciated and loved!
and Karen, never thought of the vintage feel, but it does now that I look at it..the photo had many different ways to go, but I chose this one.
