Birthday Flowers



Birthday Flowers
6x8in oil on canvas panel   $125. SOLD

No - not feathers, but it was my birthday on Saturday
and I have so many flowers to paint before they die.
These are from my daughter. A beautiful mixed bouquet.

Artist Note
I received some fabulous suggestions for my painting
of the eagle feather. It has set me off on a whole new
way of thinking about how I want to paint it.
Thank you all so much. Keep the ideas coming and it
will lead to a new series.

  2. Happy XX years and 3 days birthday, I hope you had a great time on Saturday. This is a beautiful fractured floral painting and I know there will be more of that in the weeks to come, looking forward to it.

  4. Happy Birthday, dear Julia, even though I'm late! The wishes are
      always good! So glowing, your Birthday flowers still life!

      I was born in Sagittarius, too ... It 's always nice to have new ideas through sharing, But I have never painted feathers and even windows (I have a single window between all my watercolors) so sometimes I read your posts always so interesting without being able to make a contribution!
    I wish, this time, in advance, a beautiful and happy Thanksgiving!
