Peony Envy – 4"X4" acrylics on masonite.
This painting of a macro close up of an Itoh Peony is about capturing the vibrancy of the color and the addition of my new tube of Galleria Opera Rose makes it all possible. It isn't so much about the flower as it is about the shapes within the flower which combine to form an abstract. That's the beauty of nature!
I started painting one 4"X4" miniature daily on May 1st 2015. After a near fatal drowning experience in 2013, I realized just how precious life is and I wondered why I was waiting to do what I loved most. I just wasn't finding the time.
It took a while to commit to it, but a year later, I decided I just had to make the time and I enrolled in some fine art acrylic painting classes. Under my teacher, Sharon Moore-Foster, I gained confidence and found my soul's voice through my paintings.
Now I am fully committed to expressing myself through my fine art by creating one miniature painting to mark each passing day – to leave my mark in this world.
