Holiday Bouquet, 8x8 Oil

Here's a painting of a beautiful bouquet my husband indulged me with while we were grocery shopping. I wanted to paint in the style of my previous winter bouquet with greens, but this is what I came up with after 2 tries. I guess every subject has it's own voice, and you have to be true to it. Here, at my house the time between the holidays is sort of out-of-focus, with me confusing what day it is - who's home? Who's stopping by? Who are we visiting? And although I love it I kind of am looking forward to burying myself in the studio for long hours again. Pin It


  1. Love the contrast of the red vase w/ the greens and blues.

  2. Hear, hear! I love everything (and agree with it) you said in this post. I also love the painting. Bold color combination and it really works. I too am looking forward to ensconcing myself in my studio daily and having all the holiday visits and such over with. :)

  3. Happy New Kelly. Beautiful painting. I am enjoying following your blog. I also am ready to get back to work. Christmas stuff is looking a bit like clutter now although I did enjoy seeing friends and family.

  4. Thanks, Pam, I was on the fence about the red vase (what's the focal point, the vase? the roses? the blue flower?) but for this painting it is what it is - maybe tomorrow will be different. Jala i can't wait to see what you're up to next! I totally hear you JoAnn, about Christmas looking like clutter today - tomorrow - it goes! :)


Awww THANKS for leaving a comment! You KNOW I love to hear from you!
