Original Still Life Floral Painting "Under the Surface" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse

                                 

 I belong to local CSA. When we pick up our weekly allotment of produce, sometimes we are allowed to pick a bouquet of flowers from an unruly patch of Colorado wildflowers. I gathered this armful of blooms, brought them home, and placed them in a plain glass vase and put them on my windowsill. I loved them! The star of the show for me, though, was how beautiful and delicate the stems under the water’s surface looked. The background is a series of glazes, all whites, off-whites, beiges, pale pinks, and browns. The flowers are, well… flowers. This painting received an honorable mention in the Artist’s Magazine annual competition: 7800 entries–18 winners. Even though the original sold fairly quickly, the prints are wonderful!

 This painting is sold, but prints are available in multiple sizes HERE

Original Still Life Lily Painting by "Lilies on the Windowsill" Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse



When I buy fresh flowers I place them into a clear vase of some kind and photograph them in a variety of settings. i love the way the stems look through the glass and water. I love to discover where the light refracts, and how the light streams through the delicate petals. When I looked at the photos of this arrangement, I was pleased to see all of the purples and magentas and how the light shafted through the bouquet in places.

 Acrylic on Cradleboard, 18×24x2/Available

 Prints in multiple sizes are also available HERE

A Peek Into My Studio.....


A few summers ago, we remodeled our basement and I was able to create a painting studio.  It’s wonderful.  The key is the lighting.  I put in a fluorescent cloud light, bucket lights, and track lighting with cool and warm bulbs.  It’s very bright and my eyes do not get tired.  I can make a mess and no one bothers me!  Before this, I painted in our kitchen, which was great, but I always had to clean up for dinner.  Here’s a  couple of photos of my new studio. 
There’s also a lot of counter space and a sink!

SIGNS OF SPRING, 8X6", OIL, SOLD

The iris has always been a favorite flower of mine, but the ones that will grow in Florida are not to spectacular.  The ones we have here are not the big, beautiful, bearded iris that the more northern states have.  Ours are little puny flowers.   I always look forward to visiting our mountain home in North Carolina, as one of the first things I did when we bought it, was plant all those lovely flowers from my childhood.  Daffodils, iris, tulips, lilac, cone flowers, and lots and lots of hydrangea.  I have not been able to go up so far this spring, but we are planning a trip soon.  I hope there are still some daffodils and lilac blooming.  But if they are gone, I know the iris will soon be there to greet me.  What is your favorite flower?
