"Wisteria in Shadow", miniature palette knife oil painting, france, floral
This flowering vine is so intriguing to me. My home state of Colorado is too cold to grow it successfully, but I have seen it in bloom in Rhode Island, California, France, and Italy and am mesmerized by it. The purple shades of the flower are almost white, then lilac, then lavender, the petals dripping down the multicolored green leaves, with heavy shadows and then punctuated with sun facing, almost lime hued leaves giving a stark contrast to the shaded areas of the vine. This is a miniature painting which, if matted with linen and framed with darker tones, becomes more of at statement, a "bigger" painting -- or just simply put the unframed artwork on a small wood or metal easel, it'll fit in anywhere!
