Cosmos Charm

22x15 watercolor on Italia 140 lb cold press paper; some had emailed asking would I post the painting that was juried into Unwin's The Artistic Touch 4 book. So here it is! I will ship out a complimentary copy to the painting's owners, Mr. & Mrs. Rick Jackson in Phoenix, who have been collecting me for many years now.

I drew this from silk cosmos in a vase from Petals, a floral supply company whom I don't think is in business anymore, and painted as an online demo about 2 years ago.

STUNNING~!!!! I love this piece. It's not very often you see a painting of cosmos that has a good composition. This one is fantastic. Love the bright, luminous colours. Can't wait to see your next piece. Cheers.
