Even though I’m not that into painting flowers
Even though I’m not that into painting flowers, somehow I managed to create three paintings all about flowers at the end of the summer.
It started when I saw a picture of a Nicholas de Stael painting of flowers in a vase. I was looking at a bunch of vases and a lot of flowers in the still life set-up at the Art Students League and, well, why not try to make my painting look a little like de Stael’s? After a few fixes, here it is.
Emboldened by my first attempt, I decided to try again two days later…
Not to be outdone, I gave it another try two days after that with a different vase and flowers. Somehow they seem to be getting less and less abstract.
I don’t know which I like more.
