If I Were A Flower

"If I Were A Flower"
18 x18 Oil

I think if I were a flower I'd want to be like this - showy, lush and of course, red. A stand out in the crowd!
If this looks familiar, it is. I had done a small version of this earlier and decided I wanted to try it in a larger scale. As is the process (for me, anyway) in going from small scale to large scale my technique changes a bit. This has lots and lots of texture.
And here's a little picture of my little visitor from the other evening. After enjoying her time on the deck she headed out for a leisurely stroll. She was a bit annoyed that I called after her and took her picture - thus the stare she's giving me.

That's pretty.
Framed in the backdrop of terra washed walls, it'll look great!
