flower mode

vase of flowers

I began this painting in the late autumn and as I switch from landscape to flowers I’m pulling things out of the bin for one more bit of tweaking.  In many respects this painting is where I want it to be, but since flowers still hang suspended in the air, I suppose I should give it another level of completion.

But, you know, old Pa Cezanne did this sort of thing all the time and those of us who admire the old man have a tendency to follow his habits — perhaps even when we shouldn’t!

This acrylic painting measures 36 x 24 inches.

Soon, soon, soon, I’m going to resume work on this largish 48 x 48 canvas.  I am chomping at the bit.  And all the landscape painting that I’ve been doing in recent weeks is helping me think about these flowers.

I can’t wait.
