Lilacs and Dogwood

20" x 24" Oil on Linen

My mom gave me a uniquely colored purple glass vase sometime ago.  Lavender lilacs seemed like the perfect compliment for such a pretty color and luckily dogwood were in bloom at the same time.  It sure was a challenge simplifying all the petals and leaves but squinting is the key to minimizing unnecessary details.

This painting is available on Etsy for purchase.
