This is a companion piece to Spring Bouquet. This work is an exploration in painting subject matter which can so easily go sweet in a way which creates instead a bold and dramatic effect. After doing the drawing I wet the surrounding negative area and flowed in cerulean blue. After that dried I flowed in cadmium red. Finally violet. I painted the floral area with cadmium yellow, yellow ochre and cadmium red. The exact opposite was done with Spring Bouquet.
My framing is always archival. The frame is gold metal.
