Go Wild Expressive Contemporary Floral Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse
GO WILD is so named because of my art class this morning. I had a typical traditional floral arrangement set up, but I told my students I wanted them to go wild, the flower display was just a jumping-off point for them. And wow they just started painting with fearless bold strokes, covering their canvases with beautiful saturated color and dynamic design. Each painting was so distinctive and in their own personal style, I couldn't have been happier. And of course, I had to try it too. So here's my attempt to go wild, 20"x20" Acrylic, $175. I want to encourage you, dear reader, to give yourself permission to play with your art materials, your musical instrument, your writing (you know I'm talking to you, Amy G), your dance steps, your sewing. And please share your results with me.
Acrylic Painting of a sunflower bloom with bold colors, dynamic brushstrokes and various textural elements, $700. Currently I am in the middle of a few different paintings, hoping to post them in their finished state this upcoming week.
8"x16" Contemporary Still Life This painting was inspired by Cezanne's famous "Five Apples" painting which I had the privilege to view Friday at the Phoenix Art Museum. We are fortunate to have such a marvelous art museum in our backyard. Highly recommended.
