Last year I had a goal of painting much larger than I ever had before, and finished 3 48×60″ paintings. One thing that I’m really happy about with that project is that there was really room for the abstract quality of my work to come out – from all the way across the room.
I’ve wanted to paint larger paintings of flowers and other still life objects for some time, and have given it several starts over the years, but I was never satisfied enough to post one. I think I really needed to paint those big landscapes (and give a lot of thought to the big painting questions) before making a large still life that I’m satisfied with. But now I am, and here it is. What do you think?
