"Is it yellow, is it orange, is it pink? Blushing and shy, shell shaped petals just beginning to open - a tease. Bold gestures of fleshy leaves, a hand to the face, chin resting in palm. There is so much life in flowers." - Nancy Boudreau, April 4th 2011
Here's a link to a delightful little illustrated book called "Flower Stories" by Lenore E. Mulets, copyrighted 1903. . .
This is a 5" x 7" acrylic painting on gessoed and lovingly textured mat board. Sealed with a gloss clear coat and delivered in a cream-colored 8" x 10" mat, ready for framing. The text above is handwritten by the artist on the back of the painting. This is part of an ongoing series of small works, paintings with prose and poetry, that was started in June 2007.
