Monday Musing – Art Class ~ Wild Flowers

Flowers in acrylic

I love collaborating with Mother Nature. This acrylic painting was inspired by the echinacea flowers growing in my garden. Echinacea flowers, or the purple flower, have magical and medicinal powers. The painting started as a “seed” in my art journal and found its way onto canvas.  I gave the purple flower a fanciful darker hue contrasted with  a  green background. I threw in a few nightshade berries for balance and visual interest – but don’t be tempted to pluck the berries of the Nightshade plant – they have their own magic – poison.

Nature, as in art, seeks balance; the yin and yang of life. 

~Namaste
