Purple Pansy

"Purple Pansy"
8" x 8"
Oil on wrapped canvas
She was one of the darkest pansies in the planters up at the top of the ski lift at Winter Park, Colorado last summer.  Most of them were pale, small, lacking oxygen, like I was.  Or maybe it was just my perception up at that altitude.

Purple Pansy was painted with glazes of dioxazine purple and permanent rose.  I waited for her to dry and buffed on a glaze of a transparent yellow to warm up her overall appearance.

This and most of my paintings presented here for you are available on Daily Paintworks, where they are also for sale through an auction.

Thank you for stopping by.
