INSPIRATIONS FOR THESE FLORAL and BOTANICAL PAINTINGS
Roses, poppies, gardenias, daisies, sunflowers, tulips . . . each of these flowers is fascinating in its own way. I can study the ever-changing shapes of the petals, leaves, stems and shadows for a very long time. Flowers have inspired me to make hundreds of paintings.
Seasons bring changes in colors, lighting and shadows. Time of day matters. Weather too. When combined with sunlit fields and set against valleys, mountains and skies, the possibilities are endless.
In many cases, you’ll see fields of flowers that have been abstracted with unusual shapes and colors. I find this brings a special vitality to the work. The more I can create from my mind, the happier I am at the easel.
