February Flowers

Auction Closed. Sold via Buy Now. Next Auction Monday, Feb 22. 

My wife has a beautiful voice, and once in a great while she’ll sing for me.

When she sang “You don’t bring me flowers anymore” recently, I took note!

The local grocery store had a fine selection and I chose this bouquet to bring home. Of course it didn’t take long to visit my studio.

There are many similarities between music and painting, and I enjoy using musical elements in my work.

Here for example, I felt a distinctive rhythm and directional thrust in the arrangement, emulating that movement and lilting tempo with my brush. The gentle blue-green color harmony, subtlety nuanced, keeps things light and fresh.

“Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.” – Lao Tzu

    Today’s painting, February Flowers is beautiful. I love the poetic image it evokes, the fragility of life in glass. Thank you for sharing your artwork with us.

    I love this painting. It reminds me of my Grandmother. She had a flower garden and would pick fresh flowers every morning and place them in a mason jar.

    Nice to ponder…. somewhere below all this snow/cold are sleeping plants not ready to awake yet.

    So much energy radiating from the center! Like an abstract floral nebula in the cold blue of space (February). I love it!

      So much energy radiating from the center! Like an abstract floral nebula in the cold blue of space (February). I love it! I also enjoy the photo of your workshop…the subject matter…and the final sentience of your rich imaginings…and the landscape of your artistic battlefield.
