The inspiration for this portrait began when I found this piece of fabric in an antique store a friend of mine owns...I fell in love...then came Peggy to pose one morning for the class....she had a good story and she told it as she sat very still...oil on canvas 24x24"
I struggled very hard with this subject, and when I do struggle with a subject ,I try to get a different perspective on it in each study....this is the last one...a little simpler background....I have gotten to know the plant fairly well...I like each painting for a different reason but I think I like this one the best? Who knows? oil on canvas 24x24"
This plant fascinates me...green flowers strange leaves...I am charmed by the subtleties of the blossoms...no matter how I paint , there I am...will continue the journey into the next study...oil on canvas 24x24"
