I love those old yard long floral paintings don't you? I saw one recently, on Pinterest, hanging above a stove. Right there under the vent-a-hood! An unlikely place, but it looks fabulous. So cottage-y and whimsical. It softens an industrial space with a pop of nature. I am a huge fan of garden style home decor. I think cottage style goes hand in hand with romantic, charming cottage gardens filled with herbs, crusty white metal furniture and white picket fences dripping with roses.
In the spirit of floral yard long paintings, here is my attempt today.
The background is actually the palest robin's egg blue, behind pink and blush roses...
oil on canvas, 11x14"
After I glaze it, I think I'll hang it by a big ivory ribbon.
I will glaze it with a tinted varnish that will give it an antique, aged look and shine.
Thank you so much for looking. I really enjoyed painting this sweet painting.
