Pansies from Heaven

"Pansies from Heaven"
© 2009 Nancy Laliberte
10" x 8" acrylic on archival matboard

My Granny O'Gara always planted pansies in her garden. In her memory I always make sure I plant a pot or two in my own garden. I started this piece last fall from life and then recently finished it up in the studio using a photo reference. It starting looking a little too "tight" so I took a big brush and went back in to simplify the shapes and give it the painterly look I was going for in the first place.

I've watched this painting "grow".... this final version is what it was meant to be.
