"Pink Pansies"

"Pink Pansies"
Oil on Gessoed Board

Contact to Purchase

Just now I was thinking this might be a "girl thing." Pink ruffles make me smile and think of my grand-daughter, Ella. My mother used to dress me up in ruffles and by the time I was in junior high I remember telling her to stop it already...I thought I was ready for the black cocktail dress with a slit and spaghetti straps by that time. Now I think of pink ruffles and smile!

This one was done on gessoed board which is fast becoming my favorite substrate on which to paint. My husband is going to be very busy in the wood shop cutting boards for me.... :-)
Thanks for taking a look!

Hi Cheryl,
I just saw your pansies on daily art painters. What a lovely painting. I love the "ruffly pink" look! I like it that your brushstokes are impressionistic yet you have great detail.
