Artist's description:

These gladiolus just popped up in the garden, and it was irresistible. I'm in a new home and the garden was unknown - so the surprises come up daily.

The colors complimented the new folk art pitcher so well! The paint is luscious and vivid - it practically glows. On archival linen board.

My painting process is to first layer in a warm color, like burnt sienna, onto white linen canvas. With that thin layer still wet, I wipe out the lightest areas, which later provides luminosity and usually is enough to define the shapes. Next, I apply the lightest and then darkest areas, which helps to establish the values and colors. Finally middle tones and more detailed areas are applied, always looking to harmonize the colors, refine the drawing and focus on the center of interest.

You are invited to click the 'Contact' link on the right hand side of my listing page with any special requests. I would enjoy talking to you!
