VIEW ACROSS THE BORDER

You may remember an earlier post at the beginning of December when I had started a second acrylic piece to go with my AFTER THE RAIN. Well, I have finished it choosing hollyhocks and irises as my main flowers, so maybe you'd like to check back and see how it started because here is the finished VIEW ACROSS THE BORDER:


In case it does not enlarge, I add some closeups of areas of the flower border.




I am pleased with the result and it makes a good contrast to the AFTER THE RAIN garden piece both 76 x 61 cms canvas. I have some moulding of a silvery bronze box frame about 4 cms wide and will ask David (local framer gallery owner) if he could use that for me.
Now I must work on my second MAGIC GARDEN 41 x 41 c ms to deliver all by the end of January to be transported to Normandy.
WISHING YOU ALL A VERY SUCCESSFUL AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.

How lovely this turned out for you! And what a lovely view, too - much nicer than the snow-covered everything we have here! But it gives one hope of springs and summers to come, doesn't it?

Good job on the finish of this one! Makes me wish I was there walking along the flower border.

This is a beautiful flower painting and the iris's and hollyhocks are lovely. I adore hollyhocks! You have good atmosopheric perspective in this - nice distance.

Hi Joan, Really lovely paintings. I am intrigued by flowers behind the eyecatching large flower,all of those lights and darks,dots and dashes. Wonderful!
