Fresh & Elegant, Still Life Oil Paintings



Still Life Floral Oil Paintings

Custom Floral works of art have been created by Claire J Kendrick for clients. These works are chosen sometimes for sentimental reasons, collectors often select favorite blooms or flowers associated with a memory, event or maybe even a love of gardening. Sometimes nature just adds that moment of beauty, calm and elegance to a room. Claire captures a likeness to the subject as she always works from real floral arrangements, her painterly abstract style brings a fresh contemporary energy to what is conventionally a subject handled in a tight realist style. There is nothing conventional about these works of art, drips and and paint runs are sometimes evident. Underpainting and mark making obvious in the texture and surface of the thick luscious oil paint. These are truly one of a kind works of art in a unique recognizable voice.

Attracting a local and international following, Claire is dedicated to perusing her painting career, and has studied with Contemporary American Painters, notably Cynthia Packard and Anne Packard.

Anne and Cynthia taught me that “the struggle” is a natural part of the process for a painter. They also taught me about stamina, discipline and fearlessness……the importance of bringing emotion, depth and passion into your work……….and that every brush mark helps define your creative style and helps you find your voice as an artist.

Fine Art showcased in client meeting room at the office of Denise Hagan, CFP®, CLU®, ChFC®, RHU® Wealth Management Advisor Northwestern Mutual. Denise empowers women to make better decisions with their money so they reach their financial goals. Her clients come away feeling confident. They feel secure about their finances and are freed up to follow their heart. They find the process easy, calming, and extremely meaningful, which has a huge impact on their lives. She gravitated to these orchids blooms as they reflect her love of gardening. I think they also reflect her feminine energy in a male-dominated field. Denise has been able to shine by being better able to relate to her female clients so that she can build those to lasting relationships.
