South African Flowers

This painting is for some friends who are getting married this weekend. The flower arrangement was a centre piece at their rehearsal dinner the other night. There is more detail in the flowers than the photo shows. This painting was a real lesson for me in squinting and simplifying. I kept getting caught up in the details in the flowers. I am pleased with how it turned out. I hope Holly and Sean like it. 


  1. love love is so special! thank you so much for it and everything! we will see you in august...all the best
    love Sean and Holly

  2. I just discovered your blog from Barbara's blog. This painting is luminous. I really like the contrast of rich color juxtaposed against the black and white design.

    Really good work! Looking forward to visiting again.
