Gently bending in the breeze, these wildflowers are standing tall. Inspired by the beautiful poppy, this flower painting is created in acrylic on wood, a reminder of quiet moments and the gentleness of a breeze. If you or someone you know loves art with expressive flowers, let me introduce you to the lovely approachable book Painted Blossoms by Carrie Schmitt.
Written from the perspective that you can't paint a flower wrong, this book is full of exercises to get a maker at any level started. There are interviews with several artists, each working in an intuitive style. Full of encouragement and awesome hippie dippy philosophy, Painted Blossoms: Creating Expressive Flower Art with Mixed Media is a great addition to a creativity library.
