Nurtured Indoors - Study 1
During this long period of being shut in, I have tried to stay positive and view this as a time for me to nurture myself and my family. One of the things I have nurtured is returning to media that I have not had the opportunity to use for many years. After I started my family, I lacked the time or space to oil paint. Nurtured Indoors is a small series of houseplants that signal my return to oil painting. This collection features houseplants in vivid greens and warm sunny orange tones.
Study 1 is a close up of dieffenbachia plant, with subtle variegated leaves. The warm colors I used make me feel like I'm in a botanical garden. Study 1 was painted on a 8 by 10 stretched canvas and is ready to hang in your home or office.
