Flower Garden Against a Yellow Sky III

Flower Garden Against a Yellow Sky III
Original 72" x 24" x 0.75" painting
Two 24" x 36" canvases
Golden and Liquitex acrylics on gallery-wrapped canvases

I must have Spring on the brain--this painting is the latest in my Flower Garden series of large, multiple-canvas, decorative paintings. This one is probably my favorite in the series. I'm trying to capture the essence of the seasons in each one of these seasonal series pieces that I'm painting lately. This isn't always easy, but I find that when I can relax and paint with my mind's eye it somehow brings it all into focus.
