Pop Art--Flower Power

This piece of art was one of the first commissions that I did. This consists of 4 16x20 canvases. They can be hung together as pictured or you can separate them and put space between. The bedroom is accessorized in pink and black and is gorgeous. The flower has the black background and a pink square was painted on the wall to highlight the "painting". What a great focal point for the room.

*gasp* Love this! Wonderful idea for this painting.

This is beautiful. The black background makes the flower stand out. It would look good apart as well.
Have a good weekend.

Hi Paz,
I really have a hard time painting flowers but I like them when I finally get finished.
Thanks for your wonderful input!

Hi Suzanne,
There's a little glare in this picture so it looks better in life. We tried it both ways on the wall and decided this was best, I connected them with brackets. You have a great weekend too! I'm soooo glad tomorrow is Friday.

Hi Rhonda, Im so glad you enjoyed our day trip. I love going out for the day as Im a homebody and dont like to be away from home too long. You would love where I live as there is a lot of history. The area was known for its lead mining which dates back to the 14th century. We did our family tree and my ancestors (my 9th great grandfather) lived in the farmhouse just 4 miles up the road from my home and they lived there in the 1600's so when the locals said me and Mr K were 'incomers' I was able to say 'Well actually I am more 'local' than all the villagers because my family farmed this land for over 200 years. Its really strange to pass the farmhouse each day. They left the area we think in the 1820's and came to Newcastle upon Tyne which is where all of my ancestors have lived ever since so it is strange that I have returned to live where I am as I didnt know any of this information until after I bought my house. (It must be fate) There is also a plaque in the local church dedicated to one of my ancestors who died during the spanish civil war. I have the same surname as him as its my fathers bloodline. Gosh I could go on forever with this story, so I best not bore you with anymore of it. LOL! X
P.S. A relative of mine is supposed to have died on the moors I showed you in my recent post! In those days once the mist and snow came down there would have been no chance of survival if you were stranded, it is very spooky and it comes to my mind everytime I drive over them. X

I love the colours, pink and black are my favourite. I would hang it as four separate pieces slightly apart, that would look fab! X

Rhonda said...

That is wonderful information! I'll bet you didn't know I'm into geneology! I've been able to trace my ancestors to the late 1700's but that's about it. Surely someone came over on the Mayflower, we've been in Kentucky since the 1830's so we've been in
America for a long time!. I would love to see the moors, I went to London in the early 80's and really meant to go back but where does the time go? I guess I got lost in working and raising a family. When I went to London, we took several tours to Stratton on Avon, Bath, Stonehenge . . . I want to hear more, more and more.

Hi Rhonda

Thanks for your comments on my "pink saturday" post. Pink is really not a favorite color of mine, but I've enjoyed the challenge to look for pink things so I can participate in Beverly's group. Your painting would be perfect! It's beatiful and must fill their wall so wonderfully!

Rhonda said...

Hi Pat,
You're absolutely right, this would be good for pink Saturday. I loved Key West but my pictures weren't nearly as interesting as yours!
Thanks for stopping by!

Gina said...

This is beautiful the vibrancy of it..and how you've incorporated some pink into the black.
For some reason my bloglines hasn't been updating with your new catching up on them all now! Gx
