Beautiful composition and color, luscious paint application. The slice of light behind the vase makes me happy.
It looks like something from the Old Masters. Very classy and beautiful, Diane. Exquisite colors!!!
Wow!! Diane, this is Gorgeous!! The whites are so pretty, and theres a real feeling of depth in the darks. What a wonderful little painting!What kind of flowers are they?
Absolutely beautiful, Diane - I love it too.
Stunning. Love catching up with your flower series. These do the trick for brightening up a day. Beautifully handled paint and colors!
I love the composition. Very gentle. I always enjoy visiting your art! Thank you!
I don't know how much better it could be, it's killer now! I just love this one, sooooo elegant!
Yes it's a beauty Diane!
a little different from your light and bright palette of flowers. This is intense and dramatic. I love it!
Thanks so much everybody. Debbie, these are called ranunculus!
Delicious ranunculus! Very nice Diane.
What an absolutely beautiful piece!! color and gradations!!love it!!
This one stopped me in my tracks! I love that gray you achieved and against those whites and blues..... really beautiful!!!!
I agree with Janelle -- this completely reminds me of one of those Old Masters paintings, like Cezanne or I don't know who.. but it should be in the Getty, in my opinion! :)(Just wish I saw it earlier and was able to buy it!)
