Arranging flowers

Arranging flowers (11″ x 14″ acrylic on canvas)

I have been playing more with acrylics lately than I have for a long time. Feeling experimental! This peonies in a vase composition was painted from my imagination using lots of layering, mark-making and impasto – another piece that felt very freeing.

Tom’s haiku is a perfect accompaniment!

petals falling in the sun

    1. Thank you! Yes, it was the result of some “free play” …when the red of the flowers came out against the turquoise background, it felt really good …so that was when I stopped adding layers!
