No doubt you have heard the advice: don't paint things but paint the light and atmosphere surrounding the things. I have included two photos of pansies on my deck. Both photos were taken in March, in fact one day apart. I post them both to compare a sunny day feel with the one I choose to paint - rainy day through the glass door. The bottom right is a detail. Notice the variation from thick palette knife to very thin with the pink toned canvas showing.
This painting "Let It Rain" (11x14 Oil) is available.
Also, I have one 11x14 matted, digital print. Price:$40.
