oil paint on panel
'Graceful Fall' was painted from life. I laid out white peonies on a surface to create a similar layout, as if they were falling in midair. I wanted to use the idea of them falling through space, to illustrate transience. The petals flying around them suggest they are shedding and evolving. My favorite stage of a flower is right before its petals fall. I find it's usually the most expressive state. Flowers don't last forever but the intention of these paintings is to capture this stage of their life. So feminine and graceful. In life, nothing ever stays the same, and to me flowers are perfect representations of this transient life. They embrace beauty in the moment and make us feel good while we are around them.
