20 x 20" original oil

White on white is a favorite color combination of mine, mostly because it gives me a chance to use some blues and creams that I don't if I paint other colored flowers. Thank you Linda for the title idea.

The glare shows my brushstrokes, which I think is pretty cool. I love looking at originals because I can see brushstrokes, but it's harder when looking at photographs to see any brushstrokes. This photograph from the angle kind of shows you how I put the strokes together to build a flower.

This painting was so much fun to do. I exaggerated the blues and lavenders, but I'm glad. That extra color and the pull between warm and cool gives the whites some life.
