Coneflower portrait


Coneflower, 5x7" Oil on canvas

This is the finished painting that I posted the start of last week. I like the composition and the abstraction that comes from showing a common object close. This one went pretty quickly (other than waiting for paint to dry), and I did it as a preliminary for a larger painting I plan to start in the near future.

I hope to have some additional ones to show you soon!

Love it and it is difficult for a closeup.

I have to agree with Jim, the colors are fantastic and I love that you just get a peep of a portion of the flower!
