Early Spring Creamer

Expression implies emphasis and selection

I think this statement sums up the fundamental idea that is the creative process. Creating a work of art is all about the decisions made from the choices available to the artist, where to draw inspiration from and how to narrow down and just focus on the most important details.

With this painting, I wanted to capture the spirit of a nascent spring and the delicacy of the petit daffodils and grape hyacinths. This painting was started and wiped down at least eight different times over two days. I kept trying out different viewpoints and compositions, and finally I realized that all the other objects I was including in the composition were taking away from what was capturing my attention.

Finally, I zeroed in on just the flower arrangement in the blue and white porcelain creamer. And it was what I wanted to emphasize and share with you.

Here’s wishing you a warm spring.
