"A Veil of Spring Flowers"

April 20th I made the final resolution for both concept and painting. I have made changes all over to drape the wild flowers like a veil over the rocks.

" A Gown of Spring Flowers" is acrylic on canvas 16" x 20" , for sale $350

"A Gown of Spring Flowers" is a painting that kept defying resolution. I think I would have it and there was a voice asking why did you do this. It doesn't have the whimsy of the two other 16" x 20" painted on our trip to Arizona. I took it to the Albany Group to share yesterday. Shirley Hilts thought it just needed a little transition. Well I worked this morning to give the rocks more dimensionality and I tried to make the flowers flow over the landscape like a silk veil. The eroded Colorado river bank had a face and then it came to me. Mother Earth cracked and pebble pocked was dressed in a royal veil. This fantasy was what I was doing all along and hadn't admitted it. Now it has a whimsical concept like the other two paintings - "Jagged Mountain Combing a Head of Cloud Hair" and "Reed Dragon - The Protector" To see all three paintings look at my blog gallery http://widlerwenzelarizona.blogspot.com/
