This is the first in a series called Florals Fridays. Follow me weekly as I paint small pieces inspired by flowers seen during the week. This week's piece was inspired by the center pieces at an event I attended. I snitched some of the flowers to take home and made up the rest from pictures taken of the arrangements. I am inviting other artists to join along in my weekly floral journey. Measuring just 5 1/2" x 7 1/2", I can see these paintings being given for birthdays, as a get well gift, or a house warming gift. No maintenance for these flowers, and they won't need to be discarded after a week. Matted and backed with archival materials, they will be shipped in a protective acetate sleeve.
