Fuchsia: Fancy Frills

SFA - small format art
"Fuchsia - Fancy Frills"

by Jillian Crider
on heavy archival watercolor paper.

image size 5.5" x 6"

The painting is extended onto the mat. The mat is
part of the painting.

matted size 11" x 11.5"

"This artwork is from 1993 when I created a series of fuchsia paintings for a calendar (never published), and subsequently for an exhibition.
This painting remains from that time, it was never sold, just packed away.
Personally I love this work, I love fuchsias, and this is just too lovely to be stored away and not seen.
Fuchsias are such 'happy' plants - so colorful and festive, and, in turn, this painting is a 'feel good' painting.
I'm hoping someone will give it a good home. Thank you."

Thanks for looking.

These paintings are definitely too lovely not to be seen. Thanks for posting them. Besides being a watercolorist I am a keen life-long gardener. I really appreciate great flower paintings.
