Floral Still Life with Japanese Vase, 12" x 16"

"Floating on Air"

This 12" x 16" Oil was yet another painting done on the basis of a concept. The concept here was space. I wanted to portray an object - in this case a flower, occupying space while a the same time appearing to float in that space. There is a lush impasto of paint on the flower bringing it a three dimensional sculpted look while the background remains light and airy. There is nothing like viewing a painting in person and as always this photo falls short of the painting.
I've started the bidding at $49.00 with the view that if it doesn't sell - it's one more for my show in March. Enjoy!
