Immersed in florals

June seems to be the time for floral paintings…

PaintingOrchids

Orchids – 14 x 18 inch acrylic on stretched canvas

My local day spa asked if I would bring them a painting to display in their office. I was more than happy to oblige them. I noticed orchid decorations around the building, so decided to try my hand at painting orchids. I love how they stand out against the muted background.

“Blossom” is a 5 x 7 inch acrylic painting on Ampersand gessobord

A friend of mine graduated last week. She is teaching herself Japanese. I decided to paint her some cherry blossoms, with the Kanji script for “Blossom”. I had so much fun with this painting…

that I started a second one…
