Freesia in a Purple Vase - SOLD

A good friend gave me flowers (to congratulate me on the imminent start of a full time job*). Flowers are for painting, right? I just cannot let cut flowers exist in the house without itching to portray them... in the past, I've done watercolours on cards for friends' weddings. But watercolour isn't really my m├ętier, and, besides, none of my friends are getting married. So out with the acrylics and the tiny canvas it was.

Acrylic on canvas, 7 x 7 cm

Freesia 2
Freesia 3 
Stack o' Freesia (shows edges of all three paintings) 

*Unfortunately, the full time job means less painting.


  1. Flowers are pleasing on the eye (as I was trying to convince Terri the other day). Not just for painting! :o)

  2. Ah, but anything that is pleasing on the eye invites being the subject of a painting!


Tell me what you think!
