Here are a few new paintings in the Botanical Series –

Vase and Vessel | 12×12 | Oil | CJK-Studio

This small painting inspired the large work below – I was attracted to the muted tones and calm clean palette.

Dancing Irises | 40×30 | Oil Encaustic | CJK-Studio

I was inspired to do this larger painting ” Dancing Irises”  having painted a smaller version of this still life set up ” Vase and Vessel”. The Irises provide rhythm and movement in a calm muted set up. – I like the play of frenzy and composure.
