Acrylic Floral on Canvas ~ "Lavender Blue and Rosemary Green" by Texas Daily Painter Nancy Standlee

"Lavender Blue and Rosemary Green"
12x12x1.5 acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas

This colorful floral with negative painting was first posted HERE and it has a name change and a new photo and is now posted for sale at my Daily Paintworks Gallery. This acrylic painting has some stencil, pencil and sgraffito work.
The painting has a lot of lavender in it and I thought about titles with "lavender blue..dilly, dilly". Remember that song?  Wikipedia has a nice discussion about the old lyrics dating from the 1600's and I chose a line from a later nursery song.

I love this one Nancy. It is beautiful! My mom used to sing us that song when we were young!

Great painting! I didn't know what "negative painting" was, but I can see it on this. This is really a fascinating and exciting painting. I just love it!

Hi Nancy, this painting really jumped out at me on the DPW site. Outstanding!

Thanks Virginia. Negative painting is a good way to come back in and find the flowers and shape and unify the background.

Thanks Ann and that is a compliment as there are so many good paintings on the site it is hard to stand out. I appreciate all the comments made on this painting.
