Tuscany and Provence!

These are the latest paintings from my "Romantic Series". I love to do European Landscapes...poppy fields from Tuscany, or lush lavender from Provence. The colors are always so intense! The texture is so thick in these paintings that the poppies or sprigs of lavender actually jut out of the canvas 3-dimensionally. I want the viewer to feel as if he/she can pick the flowers and make a bouquet! Most importantly, I want my paintings to provide an "escape" into an utopian world where color and beauty remain dominant. The comment I get most about my work, is that they are "happy" paintings! I just love that.
