Painting for the Day: Tahitian Bouquet


"Tahitian Bouquet" - oil 30" x 40" - SOLD

I guess I'm in a tropical mood today... must be the chilly weather.
In Papeete, Tahiti, there's a huge two story open air market that covers an entire city block. Along the perimeter local vendors sell native flowers out of big white plastic buckets. This painting is from one of those buckets on the street.

  9. Gorgeous tropical flowers. What support do you use for your paintings? Some look like paper. The values are fabulous. And after my tax prep is done, I'm going to spend some time on your photoshop tips blog. Thanks!
