Take a Bow

I painted these flowers outside yesterday in about an hour. I purposely gave myself a time limit to try and be more spontaneous. I had already prepared the 8x8" panel with black gesso so I was ready to go when the sun came out. I think the flowers were starting to droop in the heat, but I thought it looked like they were taking a bow, hence the name!


  1. Very pretty Amy!
    Au Revoir,

  2. I really like this! I have a question. Do you always paint on a black background? I really like the effect it give on your paintings.

  3. Virginia, I don't always paint on black. I've really only recently started doing that. Since I'm using the panels and panel boxes to paint on, I was trying to work into a style that was a little more contemporary looking, but still had the same feel as my other paintings.
