I wanted to paint this mostly because of the anemone flowers. They are so bold and happy looking! I also really love how most of the painting is of neutral colors but then there are the lovely pops of mustard yellow and deep pink that make it sing. I attempted to paint this a little looser than I have in the past to show the movement and fullness of the bouquet. This piece is varnished on masonite board and will need a frame for display.
