Pink Flowers

The original painting is still available.

These flowers came with the vase and included a couple of roses. I suppose that's why they were more expensive than the flowers that I have been buying.

This painting is similar to "Safari Sunset." The background colors are the same and I photographed them on a table using natural sunlight. You can't beat natural sunlight for bringing out the colors of flowers.

The colors of the flowers range from light magenta to dark burgundy, which creates a nice contrast against the green stems.

They lasted a long time, in fact, they're still on my kitchen table. I change the water frequently and add a small amount of plant food to keep them going. I have plans to make a few more paintings from these flowers....stay tunned!
