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.

    I haven’t thought about the challenge of painting when colours can change by the hour or temperature. The rose is lovely – just what a rose should be.

  5. Beautiful painting. Your photographs remind me of the Peak District near where I live.

    Hi! The Peak District is England and covers mostly the county of Derbyshire but also takes in bits of South Yorkshire, Cheshire and Staffordshire.
