Flowers for Elsie

"Flowers for Elsie" is an homage to Elsie De Wolf, a twentieth century interior decorator, and tied for second place in the Kravet 100 Anniversary contest.

"Flower for Elsie" is a dye floral I painted for inclusion in the Kravet 100 Anniversary contest. My painting tied for second place. Not too shabby!
I started out with photos I took at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens and elsewhere. I did rough sketches trying to work out the forms I wanted to depict.
In progress. This painting took approximately 35 hours to complete.

And here is the finished piece again.
