THE ONE WORD SUNDAY today is CELEBRITIES
Oil, 24 x 24 inch, The Cotton Candy Rose, ©St Germain
My first series in my paintings of the Celebrity Collection was totally unplanned. This title came since at that time I lived in the suburbs of Los Angeles and Hollywood was only an hour away. Have never been impressed with it, because it has grown a far cry from what it originally was: Holywood (no typo).
Flowers are the most beautiful creations. their dress is perfect. It is all natural, and they bloom unassumingly. Their only demand is sunshine and water. To me, these are the REAL Celebs.
Flowers in water, with a temperature of 80-90 degr. F. only hold up for a few days. Just to make it complicated, the sun turning in the afternoon, means that the petals (taking up much space on a 24 x 24 inch canvas) also turned from cool color to a bright color after a few hours! If I wasn’t done in one day, the next day I had to paint exactly the same hours.
Painted them with different “personalities, ” but they are all bold and beautiful. The Cotton Candy Rose here is romantic, but the Iris is moody and strong, the Tiger Lily is aflame, the Calla Lilly is a virgin white, the Lemony Rose is inventive, etc., etc.
If you like to see the other Celebrities of the Collection, they’re HERE. Most of them 24 x 24 inch, and some 24 x 30 inch, one is 18 x 36 inch.
