Art Wednesday: Flowers

 Flowers in an urn on a ledge by Anton Hartinger

I LOVE flowers. I love growing them, looking at them, smelling them and touch their beautiful petals.  So today I am focusing on flowers - paintings of flowers.  So here is a bouquet of flowers to you. Do you have a favourite?

painting by Pino

I like flower paintings so much that I have one on my wall.  Not the best photo, it is in fact much brighter in colour that it appears in this photo.  I bought it from a local market and I can't remember the name of the young artist.  It is a very textured painting which gives it character.



  1. I love flowers too - although I'm not very good at growing them. I like some of these paintings - the more realistic ones (realism is always my choice of art!!) :)

  2. The Maid in Her Garden and Welcome to My Garden are my favourites. I can't be bothered with flowers personally because they die and you can't eat them!!! (Isn't that terrible?) Butu I enjoy other's hard work =)=)

  3. How beautiful! I like all of the flower pictures, but that first one of the floral arrangement just took my breath away.

  4. I'm with you Amy, love the vase of flowers. But I also like the woman arranging flowers.

    Bets-flowers are beautiful in the home, add colour and cheer. It doesn't matter that they die, they still bring a few days of pleasure. You should have a chat with my dad. He loves growing flowers and bringing them inside to share.

  5. Jo,

    I LOVE flowers! They are absolutely my favorite things in nature.

    I actually liked the still life photo of the pink flower that was so delicately placed on the saucer. It's s simple yet beautiful painting. I liked the other paintings as well, but this was my favorite.
