|"Matisse's Flowers" Acrylic on 8 x 10 inches|
Greetings all and Happy New Year. Sorry for the long absence. I'm afraid time rather slipped away from me through a busy holiday season and commissions. I have so much to share with you and will try to stop in more regularly to catch up.
In December, I played with flowers. I started with a study of a Matisse painting, just for fun (above).
The next two are of gorgeous bouquets, special to me, as they aged (you can see a photo of this first bouquet in my last post). I hope to paint more of them in the future, I took dozens of photographs as they aged. It might be the season, but I'm really struck right now by the deteriorating and decay in this in-between time in nature and in our memories as generations pass through.

I will be back soon. If you have an Instagram account you might join me there (elizabethbaumanart, or click on the link in the sidebar under "Links"). I find I'm fairly regular posting photographs there (more so than here I'm afraid), not just of my work but of things that inspire me too.
