Oil sketches of Alstroemeria

Happy Thanksgiving! Among other sweet gifts, I was given a bouquet of beautiful alstroemeria for my birthday this week. They remind me of my first job, at a greenhouse where we grew these and many other flowers.

I painted these timed sketches over top of a failed star painting. It was cool seeing the blossoms take shape among the stars, and I can still see a few peeking through. This one is a bit bigger than recent sketches—8 inches square. Click on the image to see it in my etsy shop.
