This painting, while the same subject, is is direct size contrast to the other series I have been working on. Completed last summer, Orchid I is about 3 feet x 4 feet. Most of my career has involved working in such large scale, so I like to introduce that into my work.
However…the small scale, sometimes even tiny scale as the birthday pear below, focuses the image to where one has to ‘peer’ into the painting. I love to study a miniature painting…it makes me wonder and imagine what goes beyond the boundaries…..
