#351: Floral 351

Another one for the April floral art show. After experimenting with 3D medium I learnt that when I paint the whole thing 3D, it doesn't look 3D at all. The trick is to selectively paint 3D and leave some elements of the painting 2D. This is a good example.

#341: Floral 341

An artist's purpose is to elicit a response; the purpose of my art is to evoke an emotion. This painting is for you. If you are down in the trenches, having a rough day, week or month, I painted this just for you. If this painting made you smile, cheered you up for a bit, if it changed your somber mood then my purpose as an artist is accomplished today.
