When you give a gift of art, you are giving a gift for a lifetime, which can be passed on to future generations. It isn’t a gift that has a short shelf life such as flowers or candy (in our house candy has no shelf life–sometimes the eating begins in the car, but that is our secret). There are many options to think about in selecting art–you can give paintings of floral still life.
“White Flowers in a Blue Vase” was actually a special gift for me, and Dan thought that he should save the bouquet by painting it–this bouquet is lasting a life time. It was painted primarily with the artist’s palette knife, creating a heavy outlay of paint, and a sculpting effect has taken place. This is a very romantic piece, and will look lovely in a bedroom, dining room, or a little nook in a hallway.
“Roses on a Kitchen Table” brings you back in time to your grandmother’s kitchen table, and a makeshift vase to hold the flowers from the garden. This rendering was totally created with the artist palette knife, and again very thick outlay of paint. You feel as if the flowers are there in front of you, and can be picked up and handled.
