Oh Happy Day!

Oh Happy Day!
18" x 36" Oil on Heavy Duty Gallery Wrap Canvas
Contemporary Still Life Painting
My favorite canvas shape is the square, but I really like the canvas I picked for this horizontal still life.  The vase of flowers is intentionally off-center.  The bouquet fills the canvas and is spilling over the edges, implying that the bouquet is full and over-flowing.  I used the palette knife on most of this painting.  The canvas has plenty of texture color.  I focused on lavenders and greens and greys and mixed piles and piles of oils when I painted this.  This painting is for sale, and is hanging at Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas.  Thanks for looking at my blog!  Kay
