Flowers and Waters, Contemporary Floral Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse


24" x 30", Oil, $800

Painting 16 of CHALLENGE 56
56 Paintings in 28 days


Actually this painting is mixed media:  handmade papers,
acrylics, various acrylic media, and oil paints make up the image.
This is one of my favorite paintings, I suppose because I have
some tension going between abstract and representational.
Also I like the watery feel and the wildness of stems.
