Lately, I have expanded my interest in landscape painting to focus on florals. There is a challenge to capturing the delicacy and subtleness of blossoms. I like studying the way the flowers turn and dance, the light catching the edge of a petal, the variety of greens and shapes of their leaves. I paint from life, bringing bouquets up to my studio—in this case, Amaryllis flowers I grew this past winter. Since flowers tend to fade and droop, I also photograph them for when I want to study their structure more closely. It’s a very peaceful process that brings me joy. Each flower is a portrait, each painting a conversation. I am awed by the beauty around me, and the living Spirit of Nature.
