"Vintage Blooms"

This afternoon I finished a painting I'm calling "Vintage Blooms". I really love old photos, and this was kind of inspired by a mix of both vintage photos and postcards. It features a blonde, curly haired girl surrounded by many different flowers - roses, violets, daisies, pansies, berries, & chrysanthemums...

I wanted to keep the colours to only brown, cream and light yellows to give the piece a retro feel, although, it does have tiny dashes of pink & black in there too.

The original is in my Etsy Store for $75.

Time to make dinner I think!
