Fell in love with the spring wildflowers again this year during my daily walks in the woods. I used to paint similar floral paintings but back then I was working in watercolor and guache. Now that I’m painting on canvas over a textured base then using a palette knife for added texture, the paintings seem have more life, almost sculptural, they seem to pop off the canvas! Dropped off a few of these 12″ x 12″ paintings at Koyman Galleries in Ottawa earlier this week along with some treescapes of the same size. On my way to New Brunswick now….salt air, seafood and sandy beaches here I come!
