Flowers in Vase Painting (Happy Easter)

Flowers and Vase: Acrylic on 14″ x 12″ Panel

I hope everyone is having a Happy Easter! I wanted to paint something that showed the energy of spring. Flowers were always difficult for me to paint, but with practice I have come to understand how to look at each flower as a shape. I tried to not blend too much and use bold brush strokes in alla prima.

It is nice to be able to spread some good energy with art! I truly hope everyone is staying safe during this time.

Boats by Savannah River on 16″ x 12″ Panel

I decided to put more work in this painting because I found my first attempt to be too dark. I wanted to add more vibrancy and clarify where the sunlight was hitting. I chose the leave the boat in the background loosely defined. Objects can be mean many things to different people. For me, boats represent some sort of journey and freedom.



A Glance Through Waters: Acrylic Painting

Whereupon I met a light , so brilliant that the remnant hues of yellow ocher, which began as white, drifted off into the darkness and surrounded the dark olive grass. I stand among the thorns, the falling leaves, the thickets of grass. I begin to observe the colors, I can’t remember where I stand, but I stood in the shadows awakened by its presence. The thorns, the leaves, the grass, surrounded me. I did not move towards the light, as I knew that the light I saw was ever more present in the shadows.

Waterfall: Acrylic on Canvas

This painting features a beautiful waterfall in a serene setting. I had so much fun painting this acrylic landscape on canvas. I always try to push myself to do something different in each painting. I find myself moving so much quicker in painting and using loose brush strokes to create interesting textures.
