The inspiration for this painting came from an Instagram photo taken by James Jean, one of my favourite artists. I really loved it and immediately wanted to translate it into my style for my show in the summer of 2015.
The flowers and stems are heavily textured to set them apart from the background and paint has been dropped onto the canvas to add the elegant lines and drops of paint that are the signature of my 'Urban Forest' series.
This is one of my favourite pieces, for sure.

This size is typically used above a bed or seating in a living space, but also works well as a focal point in a waiting area, board room or any public space with larger walls. The dark blue background works best on a light wall, in cool tones, (white, light grey, etc . . . ).
