Plumeria Vignette

More plumerias.  You're going to get tired of seeing this flower.  I have 2 more plumeria paintings in progress.  This one was done for the Tustin Garden Club.  The plumeria that I posted last month is going to be the cover art for their yearbook and they needed an art piece for the inside.  Usually I do pastels on a sanded surface but this was done on the back side (less textured) of Canson Mi Tiente paper.  I prefer the sanded surface but it's always good to work on different surfaces.  Plumerias are such happy, sweet smelling flowers and they always remind me of summer so I guess that's why I'm so into painting them right now.

  1. No I am not getting tired of seeing them they are very beautiful I am enjoying the thoughts they are proving in me.

  2. They are just beautiful, Nancy. I just realized that I like every single thing you do, art-wise. This background is just so richly exquisite to make these plumeria blooms pop!

  3. the plumerias are lovely (as are the previous plumeria) and it's so much fun to see you going from one media to another!

  4. Thanks Ralph.

    Sherry, that's the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me. Thank you so much.

    Hi Hillary, it's nice to hear from you. Thank you. I do enjoy all of the different mediums but I do miss watercolors when I'm not using them.

  5. Lovely plumeria vignette. Such a beautiful style. The way you handled the background was very nice.

  6. How could anyone get tired of any kind of flower? These are lovely and congrats on making the yearbook!
