Bright, Colorful, Happy Impressionist Pansy Paintings

Pansy Trio, 6x6in, acrylic
SOLD

Spring Pansies, 10x10, acrylic


Just Us Three, 20x24, acrylic

Pansies are one of the great delights of spring. Different than daffodils that seem formal, like trumpets announcing the arrival of a monarch, pansies seem unassuming and filled with good cheer like the villagers and peasants lining the street to catch a glimpse of their King or Queen, gazing with smiling faces lifted up. Lately, I've tried out painting this year's pansies in three sizes, in the first two the pansies are pretty much life size but in the third the pansies have become super-sized and have the presence of guests in your home.

Speaking of flower paintings, I came across this site to share with you, it's ARTinthePICTURE.com and they have a page of the TOP 10 FLOWER PAINTINGS (of all times presumably). I don't know who chose them or using what criteria, but it's fun anyway to see what's on someone's list of the top 10 flower paintings. Perhaps I should make my own personal list of favorite flower paintings. OK, look for that in the next couple of weeks, meanwhile enjoy the pansies.
