This painting is a testament to the fact that an artist with a messy studio is more apt to come up with creative approaches to a painting. The basic floral painting here was kind of ho-hum. I made it to demonstrate for my class how a random field of texture and color could be made into something recognizable and exciting. Well, mine was recognizable, but far from exciting.
So it laid around on my worktable for two weeks. Meanwhile, I'm working on other things. Today I noticed that some strips of painted watercolor paper lying the chaos on my table were in a similar color palette to the painting.
I moved things around until I got to this composition. I just like the way it looks - nice color harmony and interesting composition. It's a floral painting that makes you STOP and look for a while.
