I have been experimenting with floral-like paintings to see if I can still get at the compositional issues that intrigue me even when creating an image that represents something outside of the painting itself. Can I explore dense areas of small bits against large areas of 'open' or quiet space in a floral arrangement? How about color and value relationships? Can I create space and depth with 'flowers'? My interest is in the abstract visual language, but I really love some paintings that ride that edge between purely abstract, and representational, so I'm giving it a try.

There is a bit of variety here, as I've been taking inspiration from a lot of different artists and different gardens. You can win "Flowers of Summer" in a raffle. I am donating the painting to raise money for the Rupert Village Trust, and organization of which I am a founding member. Thanks for visiting.
