Variations on a Theme by Manet 2
10" x 8" | Oil on Canvas Board
Edouard Manet painted several still life of flowers in glass vases. I think they are beautiful. I decided to paint my own florals. I went to the local thrift store and bought a vase that was similar to the one he used. I setup a still life, added lights similar to his and went for it. This is the painting that resulted. This is called number two and is currently located at Lauren Quinn's Floral Shop in Salina, KS. I also painted a number one which will be in an invitational show called "Small Wonders" at the Sandzen Memorial Gallery in Lindsborg, Kansas starting in June.
