Before I go out on walks I like to ask God to help me not miss the simple beauty around me. I love flowers. I really love painting flowers. It was an afternoon walk when I saw this beauty growing in my neighbor’s front yard. I loved the composition but the lighting was not right. It was the wrong time of day. I needed to come back in the morning. The next morning I went to her house. I was so excited. The lighting was perfect. She saw me outside and asked what I was doing. I asked her if I could take a few reference photos for a painting I wanted to paint. She said yes! I came home, drew out the composition and began painting.
This painting is titled “Promises.” The palette features crisp whites with shades of blue, green, purple and turquoise. "Promises" measures 24"x 12"x1.5" and is an oil painting on canvas. It comes wired and ready to hang in your home or (work from home) office.
I hope Promises touches your heart.
