New York Sidewalk Florist
11x14 oil on stretched cotton canvas
$400 (email me if interested)
I was given a challenge by my husband and son. They tell me I need to put people in my paintings. I think I have been afraid of painting people. I took the challenge. This painting is from a photo I took of my daughter when we took our first trip to the big Apple. We were both fascinated by the flowers and produce sold on the sidewalks. This is the first painting I have done with so much detail. I really enjoyed it. You really get caught up in reflections, structures, colors and PEOPLE. I am happy with it. I think I will try this again.
