The sweet aroma of flowers has filled my studio for the last few weeks, as I have embarked on the beginning phases of my upcoming series of "Flora"-inspired paintings (to debut at Robert Lange Studios in May 2014). I have really enjoyed the hands on process of picking out gorgeous flowers and constructing the many floral pieces for my models to wear. My pursuit of outdoor settings for some of the paintings has forced me to leave my studio and bask in the beauty of the city that I live in and love, Savannah, GA. Here are some behind the scenes images:
a simple crown of daisies
trying on the flowers for size before my model arrived
setting up an elaborate still life just begging to be painted!
