"Flowers and Fruit", acrylic on canvas, 11 by 14 inches.
This painting is a continuation of realizing a drawing made a few years ago as a proposal for a painting in a children's hospital. The commission didn't work out, but I liked the drawing well enough to pursue it.
Here it is below.
Below is the first exploration, in the "Neo-Retro" style, using a mix of "traditional" and digital media.
The original proposal called for the painting to be four by six feet with three dimensional elements breaking out of the sides and top. This one is considerably smaller, with no 3-D, and I think probably works out a lot better anyway.
