“Orange Poppies” ©Jill Rosoff 2010, 11 3/4″ x 6″, framed, $185.00
This one is a contrast of the poppies and representation of the surrounding garden elements in patterning. The organic patterns make me think of fabric designs that work well in quilts, or a Lanz dress from the 50’s, or even a Liberty print. Its also a color study, juxtaposing the orange of the poppies and green buds against the rich magentas in the ground pattern, and the soft lavenders of the garden surrounding the blossoms. And even though the colors are rich, the details are delicate. Click on the painting to see a larger version, you’ll see the subtleties better.
