Fauvism in Flower Blooms – Featured Art Prints

I wanted to share a couple of prints that I just added to my Foral/Still Life Gallery. Both are flower blooms and both are done using a Fauvism style of presentation. Fauvism was introduced to the art world around 1900 and the formal movement lasted only a few years, but the style that was introduced has been copied and integrated into other styles, keeping the concept alive. The elements involved are surreal colors and abstract shapes and presentation styles. I like this particular type of art as it creates a type of abstract art that is colorful, edgy and whimsical. That type of combination is usually not correlated with each other, but my thought is that the more abstract shapes of the subject create an edgy look, yet the surreal colors create a fun whimsical visual experience. I have spent a fair amount of time trying to mimic the look in many of my prints and here are two examples.

The first print is an orange hibiscus bloom. Simple enough, yet I integrated a bold level of yellow to accent the orange in the bloom. Also notice the vivid blue (almost purple) in the background.

The second art print is of a yellow orchid bloom. Again, I saturated the yellow color and exaggerated the veining in the bloom, creating a bright cheerful art print.


I invite you to visit my Floral/Still Life Gallery to enjoy these prints and many more.

Abstract Watercolor

Since abstract art prints are not just limited to oil paintings, I wanted to share a couple of new prints I just added to my Abstract Watercolor Gallery. The first one is title “Red Sunset”.  The painting is inspired by a sunset over the Pacific Ocean from the coastal hills of North San Diego County. I really went strong on the red because that particular sunset was such a vibrant display of color.

I also wanted to share the next painting titled: “Bare Branches”.

This particular painting was inspired by bare tree branches along the Cedar River in Cedar Rapids, Iowa mid February. The angular abstract shaping of the tree branches emphasizes the bareness and the purple creates a strong back drop and introduces the thought of temperature (cold).  I invite you to look at the rest of the gallery and would love any feedback….Thanks!
