Today I decided to do a HUGE painting. At least, it's huge for me! It's 30 x 40 inches wide and 1.5" deep. I wanted to do a "showstopper" kind of piece...a focal point for a room. I'm thrilled with how it came out; colorful, whimsical, and energetic. Painting large is hard for me; you really have to make sure you are mixing your colors well or things get flat easily. But, it's so satisfying when the piece is complete. I'm certainly ready for bed though! It took a lot out of me! I hope you like it too!

Welcome to Day 5 of the painting challenge! This is the same bouquet I painted in Day 2; but this time I added my own color interpretations and did a much more loose and painterly style. Much more abstract. I wanted to emphasize the fun color and positive energy I felt when I saw the bouquet. I like how it has a whimsical and vintage feel...this would be so cute paired with other small paintings, drawings, and prints. I'd love to do a painting like this but HUGE. A giant focal point in a dining room or entry-way that really gives a space a laid-back and fun happy cottage vibe. I think it would look cool paired with more serious furniture to give the room a twist of something unexpected and lighthearted. This piece has a lot of spunky personality and can have the same affect for the room it's in! Since I'm exploring my style here, I'm VERY curious to know which version of this painting is your favorite? Day 2 or Day 5?
