51. Dahlia

  Dahlia, oil pastels on canvas, 2010

An experiment working with gesso canvas & oil pastels, based on a photograph I took in 2010.  Since this piece, I’ve found other canvas-based papers to produce better results.  This piece, for all of its great symmetry & pattern regularity, always struck me as being too “shiny”.  Slightly unnatural.

But an interesting experiment nonetheless.
