Artist Nancy Brittle
20x20, oil on canvas
Midsummer Bouquet was painted in our kitchen. My sister stands in the far doorway with an old vase of freshly cut flowers from the garden, which includes a favorite from childhood, hollyhocks. I purposely placed the figure far back in space and pulled the flowers close to me into foreground. I was interested in pushing both composition and color in this oil. Framed it is 20” v 20”.
