Acrylic on Masonite, 16" x 20," c. Catherine Vines
From my flower series, done with a palette knife. This entire series was based on a group of photos I took at the capitol in Charleston, WV, waiting to catch a plane. The flowers are actually magnolias, though only the first in the series (not yet posted) looks relatively true. This always seems to be the case. I start mostly realistic, and as the series grows, become more and more abstract until even I am surprised.
