From the Forest Floor

In my front garden I have a very sweet yellow flower, but for the purpose of this painting, I made it white - and the background came from my head! I know, it must be a tangle in there.  :)

I'm hoping to have one more painting done before Christmas. Hope all your preps for the holiday are going well.

  7. Pat,
    This is a cracker. Awesomely done. That background is psychedelic and makes the flower sway..

  10. A really clever painting, Pat. The background does all sorts of thing to the flower if you look at it with half-closed eyes. It seems to generate light/energy!

  20. Pat, this lovely flower is set off beautifully by the background. White was a good choice of color. I loved Prabal's comment that it's a "cracker"! What a great expression! And I agree.
