Blue Aster Oil Painting 11 X 14 Inch Still Life

This is an 11 X 14 inch oil painting of blue aster in a green vase.  I love the blues in this painting as well as the different texture combinations.

    1. Thank you very much Miss Margaret. I am on a hunt for fall flowers. I am thinking that every four months I need to switch flowers according to season. Maybe? Lol, I don’t know. I want to though. That is the plan. Luckily, still in sunflower season…yay…but also cosmos and chrysanthemum and aster and dahlia and daisy…so many flowers I can paint. I was looking at cultivated Asian ranunculus and Margaret, those flowers are absolutely georgeous. Like a cross between a rose and a floppy poppy. I gotta learn to paint those. I am in love!

      If you have fall flower ideas…love to hear them. What will be hard is winter! I will have to tell myself…it is spring somewhere. Haha, I could just look at in season bridal flowers.

      1. I will have to look up Asian ranunculus I do love the regular ones though. I was thinking Chrysanthemums and did you know there are all kinds? oodles of them, you could pick and choose and go “artist crazy” with all the varieties and colors. I’ll be thinking of flowers that truly would shine for you. ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. Oh I know! I was looking at all the pretty chrysanthemum last night. Even the brown ones are amazing. I got me a piece of crappy canvas I am gonna practice on today doing ranunculus and chrysanthemum. Hopefully I can get going on something with those very soon. I like petals! Not so much into tube shaped bells and things.

        2. Now you have inspired me and I want to paint flowers! You are so good at what you do, you breathe life into your flower paintings. I can’t wait to see what you come up with…..you sometimes remind me of a Georgia O’Keefe because of NM and flowers and that your paintings are symbolic….

        3. Giggle. Go for it! I would love to see your flowers. I was just reading about Georgia O’Keeffe the other day and then read some of her quotes. She was kinda funny.

        4. She said…basically something like those people who see sexual symbols in her flowers are thinking about their own lists. Lololol. I think she was calling them pervs! Lololol.

        6. Typo. Should say lusts.

          Oh I know…always analyzing. And if I am thinking correctly about the word analyze or analysis I think I see the “that” you are speaking. Another word for up tight perhaps? I was also thinking about human analysis and how a lot of the perception and conclusion is really a reflection of ourselves and our own thoughts.Yikes!!!! That Freud was a perv!

      2. Oh I forgot to mention….isn’t it wonderful to paint for you….yourself? heaven, isn’t it? So…..what do you think of painting ranunculus with varying stem lengths arranged in a ikebana style? in a vase that is art itself? I just ran across a photo of that very thing…..talk about beautiful!

    1. Thank you so much Cindy. I really focused on brush strokes and laying paint down on this one without any blending. I wanted to wait till the end to blend colors and soften but when the end came, I said…nope. Not blending. Keeping everything as is.
