"Once Bitten"


20" h x 8.75"w watercolor 

detail

This work is only one in a series of many images of hostas and/or other foliage from around my yard, my neighbors yard and pond, or the Garfield Park Conservatory in Indianapolis.  I'm up to around 14 pieces, thus far - but I have more ideas to work through.  I think it is the colors that keep beckoning me!  I can't seem to get blue and green out of my mind!  I call the series "foliar abstractions."  I made up the word "foliar" because foliage abstraction just didn't sound quite right to me.  Since I'm the artist, I figured I could make a name up for the series if I wanted...artistic license!  Ha!
Some of the works are yet unframed.  Still others need re-framing (which means I'm not happy with them!)  Nearly all works will be for sale and I will post that information when they have all been framed or, at least, matted and ready for framing.

I might add that these are NOT part of what I consider to be a "Daily Depiction."  Nonetheless, I'll probably post pieces from the series here from time to time.

Thanks for looking and please feel free to comment - I look forward to it!

Janet, these paintings bring a bit of Spring to me, especially on a gray and dreary day like today. Beautiful! Vicki

Why is this not hanging in the house?
