The inspiration for this oil painting came from a Monarch butterfly that was injured and spent a few days on our driveway before finally flying away. And of course the sweet daisies that grow wild in our area was a must for the story. What can I say? I love how this painting turned out. I enjoy painting true to life and all the little details. The painting measures 6″x6″ on a 2″ gallery wrapped canvas. It’s one of my faves!
“Pink Fuchsia Buds” in colors of light pink oils painted on a dark canvas, evokes a sense of mystery! This piece was created on a 6″x6″ box canvas. Pair it perfectly with the “Single Fuchsia Flower” painted on a mini 4″x4″ box canvas:
Both are available in my shop.
Hummingbirds love Fuchsia flowers! Soon the little birds will be here again inspiring me to paint more floral paintings. 😊
“Roses” 6″x6″ oil on panel is framed in black with a gold liner. The piece was painted from life with roses from my garden. I love how this turned out!
Nothing says spring like Hibiscus flowers! This painting may be small but packs a powerful visual punch. Small works are portable and can find a place anywhere, unlike larger paintings. Small paintings can be used for seasonal decor and then stored easily afterwards. The smaller the painting, the more the detail, bringing the viewer in. (The watermark is not on the painting.)
It’s mushroom season! Warm temps and rain always lead to an abundance of mushrooms! We get a variety of strange mushrooms and this one was growing in the grass in our backyard. It looks like a little umbrella when it first opens. Then it slowly starts to disintegrate and looks like its melting! In a few days it’s gone.
I’ve added this painting to the shop and you can check it out HERE.
Sadly, bitter cold temps have returned and more snow is on the way this week. The mushroom growing season will be on hold for a bit.
