Meadow Anemone

Again, the subject was grabbed from the net.  I was completely enamored by the texture and how fibrous the leaves and the bud are. I painted this in 3 canvasses to make it a series.

Size: (3) 9x12 Medium: Acrylic

Calla Lily

Grabbed a photo of this flower from the internet...I think it was shot in macro.

Size: 12x18 Medium: Acrylic

Back To The Start...

After so many years of not holding brushes and mixing paints, my parents commissioned me back in '09 to make a series of paintings for a space that they bought. The theme was flora, the size of the canvasses 8x8 small. It was also the time that I shifted from oil to acrylic, because of my weak lungs and my concern for the environment. 

This is my favorite among the three

I didn't anticipate that acrylic paints dry faster than oil, had a hard time mixing and blending. So I did my research, and found out that you need a mister or water spray to keep the paints from drying. Oh well...
