April Bouquet

This painting took me a loooong time to finish. Realism isn’t my strong suit, but I was practicing to get better. I painted the red background first and let it sit for a couple of months before I decided what to do with it.

I love yellow roses, especially if they have a little pink in them. I thought it would be striking against red.

This painting is interesting to ne because it is my first Instagram collaboration. I reached out to my Instagram followers and asked for opinions about what I should put at the bottom of the painting since the flowers were feeling a little top heavy.

One of my followers suggested something geometrical and another follower suggested kisses, so that’s what I went with. Again influenced by my daughter, I added the cobalt frame to make it pop. Pop it did.
