A Whole Bunch of Flowers!

This month I asked GCU and Zazzle artists who paint by hand for floral offerings and here are a dozen of them - clicking on the images will take you to the artists' online stores:

Carrie is new to GCU but if the rest of her designs are as attractive as this one, 'Spring Things', she should be set to do well!

This lovely design is by Tanya - acrylics on gallery wrapped canvas.

Barbara Schreiber has painted these gorgeous white flowers in watercolour on Arches Not Paper.

This is one of my own best selling watercolours (with different ages on!).


'Waiting for Spring to Arrive' was the inspiration for this cheerful flower design in acrylics on canvas.



Hollyhocks are Joyart's favourite and led to this oil pastel design for a mousepad.

What a wonderful print, by ursinart, of a flower garden with the delphiniums stealing the show!


Animotaxis painted this watercolour of the play of the sunlight on kiwi leaves.

JKcoder's lovely 'Rose' magnet is in watercolour pencils and pastels.


Audreyjeanne's handpainted flower combines with a photograph to make a beautiful Baby Girl Announcement card.


Michele Webber used watercolours to create a sunny feel to these 'wall flowers'.

This watercolour painting of some Icelandic Poppies that grew in a pot outside my back door seems to be very popular!

Thank you to all who contributed and as summer begins at last (here in the UK, at least!), may we all find lots more inspiration for handpainted flower paintings!

Hi Judy, the flower designs look lovely!
I'm always amazed how every artist sees things completely different than an other artist, even when painting the same subject. Which just proves that we are all originals :-)
Lovely blog1
cheers, barbara schreiber
