Starry Night

30 x 15 inches

Acrylic on canvas

 

In Starry Night, I present the starry sky of an autumn evening by staging orchids that bloom on a deep black background. The flowers twinkle like stars in the night, offering us a pleasant late bloom of tender pink and hot orange tones.

 

The painting is part of my Autumn Garden series, which invite you in the felt universe of the vegetation preparing for sleep. I have sought in these paintings to illustrate my love of the small things that make the sweetness of life: the warm colors of the rising or setting sun which always gives me joy, the saline fragrance of the colored leaves on the ground, the starry sky shivering in the twilight, or the visit of a flowery greenhouse in November.

 

The patterns of the painting continue on the 1½in sides. It is strung with picture cords ready to hang.
