Artist's Description

I had a concept that I wanted to try for this piece that I thought might be interesting and that was to model a dahlia after a tie-dyed shirt. I painted it very loose with what I always remember as being some of the prominent colors used for shirt dying in the past. I decided to paint this piece very loosely and with damp paper in order to accomplish that tie-dyed shirt look. I had fun trying to mimic that appearance while still allowing petal definition. The original is 16″×12″ in size and is painted entirely with Sennelier paints, papers, and brushes.

Featured in Painter’s Universe March 2011.
