Orchids | Acrylic on canvas | 20x10"

We bought this Phalaenopsis orchid a few years back. It flowers about 50% of the time. The pot has a light diamond texture I wanted to capture. I experimented with a background of rectangular brushstrokes. Available
Alstromeria | Acrylic on canvas | 16x20"

This is a bouquet of flowers we got from the local grocery store. I painted it mainly as an exercise in painting the glass vase. The palette for this painting was limited to titanium white, ultramarine blue, burnt umber, yellow ochre, and quinacridone magenta.
I added the fallen petal as a reminder of the transient nature of flowers. And people. 2021 Available
Poppies on the Lakeshore | Acrylic on canvas | 3 12x24" triptych

I saw a photo online with poppies against a 'bokeh' sparkling light on the water. It inspired this triptych.

The red in the poppies is actually 3 layers of transparent acrylic colour; quin magenta, benz yellow, and phtalo blue, each mixed with clear acrylic medium. Light shining through the acrylic aquires intense colour. 2020.8 NFS
