Art of the Day: Thursday March 19, 2009


- by Kris Jean

This week's theme: Flower Of The Month

It's that time of year when we are being made aware, that yes, spring will be arriving again. Because for most of us it can't arrive too soon, this week's Art Of The Day selections are from some of the past EBSQ Flower Of The Month shows.

The current FOTM is the Cylcamen. If you would like to see the entries in, or perhaps enter, this or any of the other EBSQ shows for March, please visit the EBSQ Shows page. A list of all the upcoming shows with short descriptions can be found here as well.

Art: Bougainvillea by Artist Kris Jean
Bookmark and Share

I will be honest, I have never heard of Bougainvillea before, much less seen one. I went on a mission to learn more and was surprised and how pretty they are with a name like Bougainvillea LOL! I've called it everything in the book but it's proper name Bogievilla, Bogervilera and so on - I don't think I will ever get it completely right. Usually if I mess up once - It's over.

I had to take a short break from painting and this is my first painting in a month. I wanted to do something loose instead of so tight and confined as my usual work. I used Golden Fluids, and the colors used were Magenta, Perm Green Light, Burnt Umber, Titanium White, and Primary Cyan.

This would fit perfect in a tiny spot that' needs a little attention without something too large and over bearing.

This piece will be in Pembroke, MA for the Pembroke Arts Festival the weekend of August 1st.

This painting is AVAILABLE!
