Impressionistic Flower paintings

Playing with paint.  I have had a lot of fun playing in acrylics this week.  These two paintings are painted on watercolor paper(5.5 x7.5).  The background was a variety of reds that I had painted onto the gessoed paper a couple of months ago.  I started by thinking of flowers, values, color, vase shapes.    Also, I am continuing to be inspired by www.josephraffeal.com. The border and clear bright colors are influenced by his paintings and my decorative art background. I encourage you to let it go and have fun.  Till next time, Pat
ps.  You may want to select each of these paintings, then stand back from your screen for full effect!
