Oil on Panel

'Better When We're Close' was painted from life, over the span of days these flowers lasted. I brought home a variety of flowers from the flower shop and had them sitting on a table in my studio while figuring out how I was going to organize them for paintings. I ended up being captured by them sitting there in a mundane situation. The Sunflower in a whisky glass. French Tulips expressively reaching for the sun. Peonies allowing a soft place to rest your eyes. A Ranunculus that snapped off the stem and found its home in a bud vase. Along with a variety of Ranunculus all finding support on each other. After starting the painting I became captured by the tangled feeling they all had. It was like a community of personalities all interacting. The title 'Better When We're Close' came to me with this painting, as it feels there is a comfort being surrounded and loved by others. 

This painting is 24x30 oil paint on panel.

The edges of the panel are 1.5 inches painted white.
