Floral Still Life Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Flower Painting

I had an empty wall in my house.....unheard of for an artist!!  After much deliberation, I decided I wanted to hang a couple of florals I painted a few months ago.

Dreaming of Dogwood

  I wanted to inspire myself to try more of this style, very loose, and painted with lots of transparent colors and lots of medium.

Daffodil Days

So far, I have had a problem trying to dupicate the look!!!

A further complication.....the original paintings are 6x8" and I needed  larger pieces for my wall.

That was a problem I could solve.  I ordered giclee prints on canvas, increasing the size of the prints.  I have to say they came out wonderful.  I even manipulated the color slightly on the dogwood to work better in my room.  Thankfully, I was able to take high resolution images of both paintings, allowing them to be printed in the size I desired without losing detail in the  image.

Now, I just have to keep practicing until I am able to duplicate my technique.

Thanks for visiting my blog today!
