The other source of inspiration is the floral displays the volunteers create at the Cemetery Center at the Lynchburg Old City Cemetery Each time I visit, I admire the beauty of the arrangements selected from what ever plant material is available that morning.
Not Quite a Proper Arrangement
by Judith F Lochbrunner
acrylic on canvas
12 x 9 inches
Yet the floral shapes are far more abstract than realistic. And the arrangement is a bit out of balance. This hopefully keeps the painting from becoming too stiff and more of a surprise.
For contrast, I have included the other almost-completed floral painting on the easel. The traditional still life is certainly not a trend in the studio. Look for more about this second painting next week.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
And I welcome your comments on this latest "formal" abstract floral.
PS: Look for "Not Quite a Proper Arrangement" is now in my Etsy shop .
