Promises oil painting by artist Trae Mundt. White oleander flowers painted with a patterened background in shades of blue, green purple and turquoise.

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.

  • Dear Trae,

    Having had the privilege of seeing this inspiring piece of art, I can state emphatically that it truly is a magnificent work. I literally shed tears standing before it, taking in the depth, the color and the movement of this painting. In truth seeing it online doesn’t begin to convey it’s richness.

    Your work is simply stunning. Having viewed Promise’s sister paintings in this collection, I can attest to the fact each one has its own beauty, character and sense of inspiration. Each is a treasure and each draws one into the life of the subject matter. Again, your work is stunning, moving and unlike any other artist’s work I have seen.
