Art of the Day: Saturday June 21, 2008

Forget Me

- by Lisa Thornton Whittaker

This week's theme: Flower Of The Month

In January 2006, those viewing Art Of The Day were greeted with "In November 2004, EBSQ began it's monthly Flower Of The Month shows. Over the next two weeks, Art Of The Day will look at the 14 flowers that have been showcased so far. The January 2006 Flower Of The Month exhibit features Orchids and can be found on the EBSQ Shows page." A lot of beautiful work has been seen in these shows so it seemed like and idea very much worth revisiting.

Keep visiting Art Of The Day during the next few months for more "Flower Of The Month" and be sure to visit this month's FOTM show: "Fuchsia". It can, of course, be found on the EBSQ Shows page.


Art: Forget Me by Artist Lisa Thornton Whittaker
"For-get-me-not" is a rather appropriate name for this unassuming flower. Where I live the often grow as weeds (there is a patch of some taking over a neglected spot in my backyard right now!) and are not really much “appreciated.” In my painting I wanted to accentuate their simplicity as well as the vibrancy of the color. The painting to me is a snap of the flower on a thick, hot, Kentucky day - the type of day where you’d like to be left well enough alone. Forget Me! Support Art!!
