Tapestry I: Gerberas

12×24″ oil on canvas panel; click on painting for purchase information.

Here is the first in a series of four large, wide paintings of almost real flowers. In each painting, I accented with a rosy warm red and tried for a softer tone and handling of paint. With patches of paint application, the effect resembles a tapestry or a print on cloth. I will frame each one in white for a fresh, clean look. In the next three days, I will post three stages of the second painting of the set.
