    If you haven't seen the two-DVD set, "The Impressionists", you don't know what you're missing!

    I rented it from Netflix and absolutely loved it. It is an enactment of the lives of Monet, Renoir, Manet, Cezanne, Degas, and other Impressionist painters living at that time around Paris. Fascinating and eye-opening!

My darling husband bought me flowers, so I just had to paint them! I set them into a gorgeous, old Moorcroft vase that belonged to my grand aunt, and paired them with a little yellow bird carving. I purchased the little bird directly from the sculptor at an art show in Naples, Florida several years ago. I’ve always wanted to get that into a painting and finally had my chance! I like the way the flowers pop against the dark background, and the painting has the feeling of emerging from the darkness into the light, which the photo of the painting doesn’t quite capture accurately. As usual, the painting is better than the photo. I guess that’s why many people like to have paintings!

I think this would look especially beautiful with an ivory mat and narrow, contemporary black frame. It could go into a standard size mat and frame for an 8.5×11″ size painting, photo, or document.

Something to say?
