Auction: "Petunias", Oil on Linen

"Petunias", Oil on Linen, 6" x 8"

I bought two baskets of purple petunias for the front entry.  The flowers have such a soft, velvety look that I knew they would look great in a painting.  I painted a light background, allowing the dark flowers to come forward in the picture plane.  I also focused on creating the feeling of air as it envelopes the still life.  If you would like to bid on this painting, click here.
