"Cosmos and Poppies" (sold)


6"x6"
OIl on Board
Like yesterday's painting, this is of flowers growing in a local community garden--and it, too, was a joy to paint! After what feels like laboring over the figurative paintings lately, these little painting knife oils are a welcome change. I love the juicy paint you can put on with a knife, and the looseness that you have no choice about! I am looking forward to seeing how I can incorporate this with my figurative work.

Luscious knife work in these little florals Vicki, and the enlarged version is really specatular... I can't wait to see how this translates to your figures!

I found your blog through Jeffrey Boron's and I am very glad I did. This is fantastic! I love everything about it- especially the one flower against the dark green trees in the background. Well done!

Vicki, these are terrific little florals. I like your loose approach and your color, as usual, is lucious.

These florals a wonderful, Vicki, the texture of the knifework really creates a lot of movement. Very beautiful.
