The Gift of Flowers

It’s no surprise that I love paintings of flowers. I have been a huge admirer of van Gogh’s sunflower paintings, as well as Manet’s still life works, Monet’s bouquets, and Redon’s ethereal blooms. I just don’t seem to paint very many for myself. This year I have been happily consumed with painting faces. But every once in a while, it is nice to get away from the usual, and try something different.

In these four paintings, which I call the Gift of Flowers series, I took color and texture pretty seriously, while giving myself the permission to play with brush strokes, scribbling into the paint, and even some stenciling. I really love the result…





I enjoyed this series so much, that I am considering extending it…and maybe doing some larger ones too. All four are now available in my online ArtcyLucy Etsy shop.
