    Still Life with strange Flowers

    I spent some time painting a still life from imagination - the flowers look a bit strange as does the vase, but I like the composition so I thought I'd show it to you too

    thanks for looking, I hope you enjoy.

    That's really pretty! Such nice vibrant colours.

    I used to collect odd looking vases when I lived in the States. Always thought they were really neat!

    You are right...the flowers do look a bit odd, but I like "odd" and things that seem out of place...I like the composition and painting :-)
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    thanks for your nice comments Muir, Semd, Jasminek

    Muir, you might paint a still life of your "collection of odd vases" - just like you, I think those uncommon things are interesting to look at and I would love to see what your collection looks like

    hehe Eighty+ ... now THAT should be the title of this painting! "Mouse singing Opera on an Elephant's Foot"
    (perhaps I should convert it to grayscale before renaming?! )

    thanks for looking

    MSIE, I wish I still had them. Unfortunately, they've long been lost. I left everything behind when I moved from Missouri to England 10 years ago.
