My grandmother used to have quite a fabulous garden. Her pride and joy were her many roses. This developed a love of all flowers and birds in me and I paint them as often as I can. I really miss my grandmother and her garden.
I’ve been painting with watercolor for a few decades now. I love layering the colors to make them seem deeper than watercolor normally looks. Each layer of color has to be allowed to dry before another is used, so this method takes a long time. I would say this painting took a couple of days to complete.
Each of these is original watercolor paintings on 300 lb. watercolor paper. Please notice that there are several of these paintings, each with different colors and different subjects. The sizes are very similar, not larger than 12” x 18”, not smaller than 9” x 12”. Email me as to which of the paintings you are interested in purchasing. They are “Tomatoes,” “Persimmons,” “Orange Dahlias,” “Lilacs,” “Chrysanthemum,” and “Yellow Ranunculus.” It was a fun painting to create and to make the colors pop. I would love to see each of these find a nice home.
The paper is 9” x 12” unframed, large enough to decorate a room or put in a grouping over a couch or hallway.
Each painting is being sold unframed for ease of shipping.
Return Policy All sales are final. This painting is sold without a frame for ease of shipping. I suggest you take the painting to a framer to get it matted and framed behind glass or plexiglass. The matte is important to keep the paper from touching the glass. If the paper comes in contact with glass it will age more rapidly and even turn yellow.
