Kaleidoscope

22" x 28" from a photo I took at a local florist.

They let me come in all the time to take snaps.



I really enjoyed this process of color and value.

Re: Kaleidoscope

Neato! I love the way you walked the line between realism and abstraction. All those colors are beautiful.

Johnnie, excellent colour and the painting looks as if is being viwed through a diffraction lens. Very unique and attractive
