Flowers in Ball jar

Hello there, I have painted this little green jar many times but I love it, it's like a little jewel. I started with a much more saturated background but ended up graying down the color and it makes the more saturated colors just pop. I remember reading an article in a art magazine by Scott Burdick and someone wanted to know what shade of red he had used in one of his paintings. They thought he wasn't being honest as their red did not look like his even though it was the same color. His red popped because he surrounded it with grayed down colors. This is acrylic on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas. This is available on a buy now option through Paypal. It comes to you unframed and is $65 with $5 shipping anyplace within the continental US. Thank you for visiting.

Bonjour chère amie,

Un adorable bouquet... Vos roses sont gracieuses. Vous avez raison en ce qui concerne ce que vous écrivez. Une couleur peut devenir sublime Grâce à celle qui se trouve juste tout près... et terne à cause d'une autre.

En ce qui concerne votre petit pot, on n'abandonne pas une équipe qui gagne !...

Gros bisous

Thank you Hilda. I like to paint flowers in an impressionistic style but I am glad they read well to you. Thank you so much for your visits, hugs.
