I came across a terrific artist and I find her work so inspiring that I just had to show it. So, I thought I'd combine my Mosaic with Artmind and my new Holy Grail of painters. Her name is Doris Savard and I am totally in love with her floral paintings. Here are four of my favorites.
From upper left, clockwise...
"Lime et Framboise", mixed media, 48x48.
"Jungle", mixed media, 30x30.
"Margarita II", mixed media, 30x36.
"Fleurs d'Ombre", mixed media, 36x36.
Don't you just love how she plays with color? I can hardly imagine how fantastic one of her large paintings would look on a white wall. Stunning. Savard's work is incredibly inspiring, she is so good with her play of color and her impressionistic style.
I know this is the way my mother wants to paint. She uses oils, as I'm sure I've mentioned before. I'd love to learn how to modify this style to work for me, too. I know it's a long way down the road until I get to a place where this could be my style, but seeing a glimmer of my own potential growth within Doris Savard's work is so helpful as I winnow out where I want to go with my paintings.
I'm off to paint happy flowers. :o) See all you lovely people later, K?
I'm a watercolor and mixed-media artist who blogs about her adventure in paint. Come visit me at JustAddWaterSilly.com. I also am a contributing editor for Featuring magazine, an international english language art magazine published quarterly. Previously I owned my own wedding cake business (for eight years) making designer wedding cakes decorated in handmade cold porcelain flowers. It was fun creating three dimensional real looking flowers as decorations but I really wanted to be a painter so when I moved I shut down the business. Now I paint, blog, write for Featuring and review good books for fun. It's a good life.
