Small Floral Still Life, Red and White Flowers, 6x8 daily painting

Like all the rest of you, I am busy, busy, busy these days.  The holiday season passes in such a swirl of activity.  Rush, rush, rush!

$96 + 6.50





I decided to paint a floral still life with a holiday look, but not so "holiday" that it would look out of place the rest of the year.



I found this image in my computer files.  A little arrangement I did from the flowers in my garden in North Carolina.


I set the flowers in the window, creating nice back lighting.

  I like to use black frames to really make the paintings pop.  How do you finish off your paintings?

Painting this little scene took all the stress out of my day.  When I had finished, I felt as refreshed as if I had taken a short nap.  Take a moment out of your day, take a deep breath, and try to enjoy the season.
