Piece description from the artist
The inspiration for this piece came from my garden. This is one of my favorite flowers of which I have several colors. The orange is my favorite color. This piece began life as a digital painting, was printed on canvas, and was highlighted with acrylic paint for special effects. This piece has such bold and yet dark colors that make it very intriguing. This is the perfect piece to draw attention. This is always a favorite of flower lovers.
