Flowers fascinate me. I love to study their simple and intricate shapes and then abstract them to create colorful and complex images that combine nature and imagination. I paint and draw flowers in every medium, but I often choose acrylics because they allow me to work within a limited palette so that the colors add another level of harmony to the joyful images. I often create flower paintings in series so that they work together on the walls to enhance one another. Flowers, big or small, I love them all.
