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.
