A favorite flower, red geraniums, were the inspiration for this commission. After gathering a design board and pictures of the room where the work would be installed, I determined the best size for the job and started in. Always I begin with a doodle start, only playing with the color to create an original ground. As the painting developed, I added fabrics, my sketchbook doodles, and woven paint skins to depict the basket and create textural interest. Several times I consulted with the patron and tried the painting in the room to determine if the color palette was working. Once finished, this is a focal point and beautiful in its setting.
