Brides Bouquet inspires Painting – Newlywed Gift

The Bridal Bouquet was inspiration for the wedding gift given to a wonderful couple. The painting is to be a reminder of their special day. Please view a Progression Video, of the painting “Sweet Wild Blooms”.

Artists notes-

The subject and style of the Bridal Bouquet lends itself to a timeless lasting work of art. Instead of the bouquet floating in mid – air or placed on its side, the floral arrangement is set into a glass vase. Keeping the background palette clean to compliment the subtle colors in the arrangement of wild blooms, I hope the newlyweds will enjoy this still life painting, the title was easy because the scent was so divine  –  “Sweet Wild Blooms”

Tell me that you love me

60×60 | oil and wax

This large scale abstract painting was inspired by a small plein air study. When working on such a large scale painting there is an importance to bring attention to a strong composition. Setting the horizon line low lets the sky do lots of work bringing movement, one wave boldly painted adds to create  drama. On this scale I enjoy pushing the boundry’s these large paintings demand paint and energy and sometimes an apparently simple composition works well.
