Maybe the Last Flower

Well, friends, another flower and I think my last for a while. Painting flowers is really not the direction I see myself going in. Maybe occasionally, but for now, other subject matters are calling me.

Speaking of which, I successfully etched two copper plates yesterday and am going into the print studio this afternoon to print a proof of each of them.
As soon as I let my fingers run over the etched copper, I was in love with this technique (I am such a tactile person!) and keep staring at the etched plates. I can't wait to see how they print! I'll take photos and share...
Pretty in Pink - 5x5" acrylic painting on gallery-wrapped canvas.
I leave you today with much love and hope that you are having a beautiful day that keeps getting better and better and better!!

P.S. Today is Friday and I can tell you that this was NOT the last flower. I should have known... :) I'm off to the print studio for now, but I'll be back later today...


  1. I love your flower paintings Silke, so bold, striking and colourful, just my kind if thing. I hope you and yours are well xxx

  2. Une fleur qui explose de couleurs...
    J'ai hâte de voir l'évolution de votre prochain projet.
    Gros bisous

  3. Yet again another beautiful flower. I can't wait to see what you do with the copper plates.
    Hugs and blessings.

  4. Liebe silke,
    ich finde den Kontrast zwischen pink und schwarz total schön. Vor allem in 3-D-Optik sehr interessant.

  5. Even if your heart wasn't really there the flowers are very nice. Can't wait to see what you do when your heart is in it.

  6. Silke, this pink flower is very pretty. It sounds like you are very excited about other things right now, though. You need to put your energy into the things that make you happy. I am very eager to see the prints from the copper etchings that you made. It must be so exciting to see that first print!
