Daisy Days

Piece description from the artist

An abstract realist style floral landscape painting, depicting violets and perennial sunflowers – I call them daisies – on a dappled bit of grassy hill. I like to stroll through the neighborhoods surrounding Boston – Somerville, Arlington, Cambridge, Medford and admire the little microgardens in so many peoples’ front yards. Often these have an abundanc of small brightly colored flowers – reds, blues and violets with a mound of daisy-like tall flowers in the background or topping a fence. To me, these little scenes are the look of warm weather in urban New England.

This was painted using dilute washes of oil on unprimed cotton canvas to create a loose watercolor effect. Alkyd impasto medium was used to paint in details that lay on the canvas like appliques. The final layer of details was sculpted onto the canvas using a palette knife. This gives the effect of glossy foreground flowers in relief against a fading background and adds to the visual energy of the piece.
