I usually paint cityscapes, but I love flowers: When I find myself stuck in a rut, I turn to them for a change of pace. I love their shapes and vibrant colors. I’ve painted flowers many times over the years: when the painting succeeds, it is a joyous tribute to life. I’ve always had a fondness for the Vanitas paintings of the Dutch Golden Age, which often feature flowers as symbols of the ephemeral aspect of life. I like that the Vanitas are not just decorative, but also make a statement. I try to capture something of that profundity in my own artwork. I usually use oil paint for my floral paintings, as is the case with Amaryllis Bouquet with Lemons and Petunias with Cherries. I find that the bright colors and vibrancy of flowers are best captured by the luminosity and depth of oil paints. Although I sometimes use acrylic, as I did with 3 Tulips in a Blue Vase.
