A fun arrangement of flowers in a watering can. I intentionally avoided glazing the flowers too much in order to maintain their vibrancy. I used a combination of Sennelier, Daniel Smith, Winsor & Newton, and Rublev watercolor paints for this piece while the substrate was Sennelier 140# Cold-Pressed paper. This paper really helped interact with the paints to create interesting subtle texturing. The original is 12″×16″ in size.

I am a still-life and floral watercolor artist based in the Tacoma, Washington USA area. My work can be found in collections throughout the world as well as on the set of ABC Studio’s television series, “Desperate Housewives.”

    oh,, how fabulous this is KEN,, wow, love the flowers and your choice of background and treatment, but I do have to ask,, are these in the bathroom, sitting on top of the tank???lol!!! if so bravo,,I love it where your inspiration came from, this goes to my faves,, love it.. peace and love linmarie♥♥♥

  • Thank you!

    These were is a friend’s bathroom on top of their tank. They aren’t even real flowers! LOL! I thought about just putting a shelf across the bottom but then I thought it would be a funny little joke for myself to leave the tank top in the painting. You never know where inspiration will strike, eh? I have been thinking of doing an entire series of paintings that are just stuff sitting on top of the tank! What do you think?

    I LOVE THE IDEA!!!!!! go for it, so I am your first friend to see that, lets see how many others catch it, its a brilliant and fun idea, maybe a few perfume bottles etc,, sitting on it, shampoos, just giving you food for thought,, ohhhhhhhhh,, we are talking about the bathroom,, lol!! well at least I threw in the perfume.. I did a series of drawings of outhouses, and they sold like crazy here in our area,, thought about bring those back again,, yup, most folks bought and framed them to hang in their camps or outhouses,, my mother including has one of them hanging over the john in her hunting camp,, its funny to her folks talk about the art piece in there,, so see?? go with it, life is too short not to smile and have some fun with our art too,, have a great weekend my hero friend, hugs linmarie♥♥♥

  • Yes, you are the first one to catch it! No one has caught it on my Fine Art America page yet either and it has had 920 views at this point in time. I wondered if the intensity of the flowers kept people’s eyes from discovering the tank top. I intentionally kept the flowers detailed and left the watering can and tank top very minimalistic.

    I will have to give some serious thought to the “tank” series!

    Very vibrant.

  • Thank you Jenny! I intentionally avoided glazing in some really dark areas between the flower petals in order to keep from dulling the vibrancy.

    Great arrangement of colours too. love the sharpness of the petals in the purple flowers.

  • Thank you Ian! I wanted the eye to be drawn specifically to the purple flowers with the rest of the piece only existing to support them.
