"Wild Flowers No.2"

Oil on Board. Approx 6"x6" SOLD

If you look back on my blog, you'll notice I don't paint many flowers. Truthfully, I have a hard time with 'em. I feel I can paint fruit 'til the cows come home but flowers give me quite a challenge. Although lately I have enjoyed painting flowers. I'm developing a technique, I think. I have one more flower painting (at least) so stay tuned...

btw, I noticed my last blog post didn't go out to my subscribers. My apologizes.

This is really nice -- I like your treatment of the background, so loose and breezy. Makes me smile!

Beautiful! The background really supports what you've done with the flowers.

I agree with everyone, great work!

Hey Michael,

I would say that you definitely have a technique going here - and a very successful one at that. The color combination that you have chosen really pops out those flowers, and the brightness of the largest one is beautiful against the variation of the greens and blues. I hope we will see many more flowers from you in days to come - I would think that they will become quite sought-after paintings!

Not only have you captured these flowers wonderfully but love the brush strokes in the background.

it is easy to paint landscapes but very difficult to draw flowers. i love the flowers. they don't wither, fade or fall. everlasting. i love it.
