What a fun painting this was to do for my Philadelphia friends. She was done in acrylics on a 30″x40″ canvas…a double lily…lilies have many symbolic meanings..mostly friendship and devotion…it is the May birth flower as well as the 30th wedding anniversary flower…so I was thinking of more than matching a sofa…I was thinking of the celebration of life and love and friendship.
This photo does not really do the painting justice…meaning the reds are very different from each other..that is what I was going with and in person..well…it is much more vibrant…red is my favorite color to paint with..it adds such passion but I usually dont bring out the red til the end because I can get carried away so this one I just flat-out started with the red…also in acrylic 4’x7′.
Silver Fox gallery represents my work in downtown Hendersonville on Main Street…this is another of the series 4’x7’…in acrylic…if you notice three circles “appear” in each of this series I think it must be the spiritual Father/Son/Holy Mother that seeks expression..I LOVE this and loved doing it…my process is that I paint these canvases two at a time propped against the garage doors. I do two at a time to let the paint dry while I work on the next one…this allows me to add layers which I now am getting pretty efficient at with the Golden GAC 100 as well as the gloss gel..this has added a whole new dimension to the paints and I just am having so much fun….
