Tulips and Dahlias in great vessel original acrylic painting by Kathy Miller

The second in the new  12″x12″ flower paintings!  This size is perfect as a gallery grouping on a wall or just sitting on a shelf in your bookcase.

I love the size! It is an original acrylic painting on canvas, 1 1/2 inch gallery wrapped which means it doesn’t have to be framed…

Or add a subtle and sleek look with an antiqued silver leaf picture frame, a canvas floater.  Float your fine art canvas, suspending and separating it from the moulding.

I love to show my painting process…

Round 1…Get the paint on the canvas … I casually sketch and then apply paint to cover the canvas.  When it is dried I coat with a varnish to add depth.

I always love this first step….Just seems to be so loose and free…the only problem is…not enough paint.

After several more rounds of adding paint…(liking some things I did and then not liking some)…I finally finish…Sign and add last coat of varnish.

And once again, I photographed it in black and white (Thanks to an idea from Steve Leimberg).

Remember…it forces you to look at the lights and the darks!
