“Flowers in Paradise” black/gold frame is a beautiful hand painted with layers of pastel as an Archival Re-creation of the original pastel painting.
“Flowers in Paradise” Black/Gold Frame stretched canvas takes on a modern look because of the shiny laquar black and gold carved frame yet the art is ageless. Reminiscent of the Venetian painters who used dark mostly black backgrounds to highlight magnificent flowers I decided to use Dark Royal Blue as modern alternative.
Flowers in Paradise” Black/Gold frame Re-creation stretched shiny canvas gives this one of a kind art an oriental feel. Hand embellishing the canvas with touches of oil color adds a sensuality to the already lovely flowing petals. The black/gold frame brings life and beautifully compliments the 16 3/4″ X 20″ work of art.
Finding these beautiful unforgettable Flowers was a surprise. After visiting a client from Ocala Florida much to my surprise I found an Equestrian Jumping Competition in progress. Awestruck by the horses, the riders, magnificence of the grounds I noticed at the end of the course, the last fence, was a triple high pristine white jumping fence decorated at the side posts with the most opulent gorgeous flowers to beautiful not to take them into my heart and create a pastel painting “Flowers in Paradise” Black/Gold Frame. These flowers were so incredible I never wanted to forget them.
Creating the large Rose was crucial for the painting to be a success. Highlighting the flowers against the Dark Royal Blue Background was slow working with the dark pastels surrounding the other colors. To accomplish the deep Royal Blue many pastel layers were applied to reach the depth of color. Working with pastel one must be very careful using the darks and lights to keep them separate. Since pastel is a dusty medium the layers of each color are slowly applied to create the contrast for the “Flowers in Paradise” black/gold frame to shine.
