Forsythia branches - SOLD


Today I finished the painting of forsythia branches I posted about here. It took a few turns. I wasn't exactly sure where I was headed, but I like where I ended up. Below is a detail of the painting. This is acrylic on stretched canvas, 16"x20".

I love It Kim! I love the choice of background colour. I can't wait for spring now! I have a forsythia bush as well and it is a sure sign of spring when it blooms.

Il est bon de retrouver vos oeuvres après plus de 6 semaines d'absence... Je rentre tout juste des Philippines...
Une peinture pleine de fraîcheur... Gros bisous

I think it's really lovely. I love that your lively strokes give the feeling of movement. Gorgeous :0)

This is lovely, Kim.
For a few weeks my students have been painting still lifes with Forsythia...
but plastic, I'm afraid. They're real enough to paint from, but still lacking the variety and beauty captured by you in this painting.
I have brave Daffodils smiling in my front yard, happily.

I absolutely love where you ended up with this one, Kim. Probably my favorite. Is this a private commission?

This is so beautiful . It's soft and springlike and I just want to keep looking at it. Wonderful!

Love the painting. Gorgeous. Are Forsythia out in your neighbourhood. They are in some places here. Odd.
