I had such fun painting these flowers in their pots. The idea was simply to challenge myself to paint nine of them--odd numbers being so interesting--and see what happened. Individually the paintings please me, but together I think they made a really beautiful collection!
In order to show you how they look I'm including a shot I took before framing them, just loosely arranged on the table. You can see the individual paintings fairly well this way. (You'll notice they aren't in the same arrangement as when I matted them. I spent quite a while deciding on the perfect order for them!)
Each of these little 2.5" x 3.5" paintings would normally sell for $50.00 (unframed) in a gallery. That means this collected one at a time the nine paintings would cost you $450.00, and that's without the cream color double mat. Add a 20" x 16" white or natural wood frame--or even a green one, if you're the adventurous type--and the presentation will be quite stunning.
Matted and ready to frame, these nine paintings will only cost you $300.00.

I love the towering red cliffs we see around here in New Mexico. They're such a delightful contrast with the surrounding greens and the blue sky. It took me a while to recognize that to get the striations in the layered rocks to read correctly I needed to paint them in perspective, but it's not stringent the way architecture is, just gently receding into space.
