Spring Wildflowers, 36 x 48 inches, oil on canvas
Very excited to be sending four brand new paintings down to the “Pop of Color” show at Southwind Art Gallery in Topeka, KS, opening on April 5th. I’m planning to be at the reception on April 5th. If you’re in that area, I hope to see you there.
This painting started off a while back and while I really liked the subtle, hazy quality to the distant area, I wasn’t happy with the foreground. But over the weekend, after working on several smaller paintings for this color show, I realized that even with the river, this painting could really benefit from a path in. I added in the colorful wildflower and green grass path, and now I think it’s pretty lovely. Sometimes you need something bright to really show off something subtle – or vice versa.
