Flower of White
Painting more traditionally.
This elegant sumi-e is called 'Flower of White'. This is a more traditional sumi-e painting and different than most of my contemporary ink paintings. In this painting I have used primarily sumi (ink stick). This painting has only a touch of red at the flower's center. The original painting can be seen in the Gallery Be Well.
I love painting flowers and I am very inspired by their nature and presence. I concentrate on capturing the special spirit of flowers in my paintings with every stroke of my brush. Flowers are very powerful and yet blissfully delicate. They are with us blooming for only a short while. However, their beauty is undeniable and remains with us in our hearts long after their graceful bloom has faded from sight.
This 'Flower of White' image can be purchased as a gorgeous fine art giclee reproduction from Fine Art America. You may purchase your print as a framed piece right on the website or not as you like. You can also mat it if you wish.
Here is an example of this image framed beautifully in a black and gold wooden frame with no mat. Prices are very reasonable at FAA and the workmanship on the frame is flawless and of the highest quality. The inks used for printing are the finest available. You may also choose your grade of paper starting with archival.
