I show the paintings I'm working on through out the entire process, before I even post them to my website, you could own one of these creations of beauty!

Well, its official! This painting is now an award winning piece. "Best Floral Painting" award given by the WARM SPRINGS VALLEY GARDEN CLUB AWARD, Bath County Art Show 2013.

I really feel honored and blessed. There were some gorgeous paintings submitted, and I'm proud to be ranked among them.

A modern chrysanthemum flower painting. It is from a series of three done from a single chrysanthemum plant in the front yard! This is the only one on a 30" x 40" gallery wrapped canvas. The others are on panels.

This particular view reminded me of our many fireworks displays thus the naming. There was just a touch of dew/frost on the petals that morning. The tiny water droplets were concentrated inside the center of the blossom. It was a glorious display of nature.

There is a great trick I used in the foreground to bring the most forward petals out of focus and draw your attention back into the center of the blossom, where all the action is. Enjoy the celebration! I sure have.

More about the painting:

I use a 400 year old Flemish technique that involves painting in layers. This produces superior results both in the effects that are found in the work, and it's longevity.

Close up views will show the depth and details not usually found in paintings today. I've also included one that is very close to scale, and gives you a good idea of it's size compared to some furnishings. This modern chrysanthemum flower painting is gallery wrapped, so it is ready to hang, no need for a frame.

I know you will enjoy hanging this in your home as much as I did in creating it!
