medicinal medley

 Coming up with different still life set ups that are interesting to me and the viewer is always a challenge.  I started with the purple orchid and chose items from there. I personally like to paint flowers that are stemmy rather than real full.  I think  bunches of flowers are overwhelming to me.  This is painted on an 11 x 14" linen panel.
Have a great weekend!

  1. This is beautiful; I love all the elements. I agree on the flowers, I just finished some hydrangeas and they wore me out! Too many petals to contend with.

  2. I really enjoy the colors and shapes on this painting - the result of a great composition.

  3. Oh that small vase is absolutely exquisite! Wish I could see it closer! A lovely piece, Carol.
