The Garden Collection

Posted on April 27, 2015 at 1:40 AM
I've decided to start a flower collection. It will not be what you think. This is a new take on one of my old paintings. Back in 2008, one of my very first painting was a green skeleton on their knees, the head was a rose bulb lying on the ground with loose petals scattered. It was one of the first paintings I ever sold. This new collection will not be as morbid, however, it will still be a little weird. In a fun way. I am starting a line of flower people. These flower people represent growth and new beginnings. I am in a different place in my life and not as dark anymore. I felt bitter, guilty, angry, sad once. It seems that was a lifetime ago. It's time to get back in the studio and create something beautiful for all of mankind to enjoy. An idea that love is the answer. Aside from implied motion, these paintings take on a life of their own that words cannot describe. Using a vibrant color palette, these images are current and exciting to display! Stay tuned! -CG
