Distinguishing Lines - Purple Petunia

Distinguishing Lines,  5x5" Oil on canvas

Ready to Frame.
(Plus $10.00 shipping in US, IL residents please add 8.25% sales tax.)

The beautiful veining in this painting, as well as the folding and undulating petals and interesting shadows all made this irresistible to me as an artist!   This one and the one posted before this one use the same reference picture - but are done in two very different styles of painting
(also different media).   It would make a very nice addition to the decor of any space - either framed on a small wall space, or framed and on a small easel on a book shelf!

Petunia in Shadows

matted in off white (measuring 12x12")

This was yet another take on creating color and effect with broken color.
I loved the shadows and the subtle color on this flower.
Its been a very busy few weeks - but I'm working in the few minutes here and there.  School is almost out now, and I look forward to having more time to spend in the studio. Hopefully, you'll soon see the results of additional time!
