Art Description

Painting: Gouache, Acrylic, Ballpoint Pen, Marker, Paint on Wood.

This large blue, orange, pink, white and green gouache and acrylic painting on cradled wood board emerged from the fantastically productive painting trance I disappeared into during early January 2018. It features wildly blooming lilies in vibrant orange, speckled with deep indigo, and others with frilled lacy petal edges in white and cream, striped with vivid coral and magenta slashes and speckled with gorgeous deep carmine spots. A giant delicious monster leaf arches across the back of the flowers, painted in deep emerald green gouache and speckled with mint. The patterning on blossoms and leaves add texture and depth to this piece, while the deeply toned blue background offers soft washes of dreamy color, descending into inky darkness in places, much like the light of early evening. Bright green ferns and luscious red reeds punctuate the composition and pink trumpet vines explode into the piece in places, growing wildly and freely, surrounded by little circular leaves in hunter, emerald and forest green. This piece glows with growth and verdant, lush, natural beauty. It feels like a walk in a lush tropical garden in the early evening near the end of spring, when the flowers are blooming and releasing their glorious scents into the air to mingle softly with the night.

It will ship in a fully lined masterpak art shipping box, lovingly wrapped in glassine and layers of soft padding.
