PLANT LIFE - MALE NO. 3



While sorting out my little art room over the long weekend, I found two paintings that were unfinished - both will fit the series I'm working on for the "male" versions.  So I have to find more "female" versions of plant life to paint.  I do have one I'm working on right now so stay tuned for that...

This one =

Half sheet (15 x 22 inches) Arches 140# cold press


Plant Life:  Male No. 3




And, biologically, I know that a flower has both male and female parts but I'm just going on the obvious (or not so obvious) shapes to guide whether I call these male or female plants :)  Hope no one is offended but gets the humor - it worked for Georgia O'Keeffe, didn't it?  Of course, she wasn't happy and always said others saw things in her macro flowers that were NOT there (and sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, Sigmund!)

This is one of my favorites of your paintings to date, Rhonda! The color saturation is phenomenal! And I love the sense of humor (I am a dirty girl, I guess). Made me smile this morning for sure. Not an O'Keefe fan at all but do like what you are doing here.

I love the delicate colors in the white flower and the bolder colors in the background and leaves.

Thanks, Carol :) Really like your last painting - totally not something I'd paint but you do it so well.
