While on one of my walks I came across a beautiful rather lage hibiscus flower. I couln't help but take a photograph of this flower. Then as I was looking for inspirations for my new painting I came across the photograph and I fell in love with the beautiful colors and the lines that made up the petals. When looking at a flower we don't usually get this close to it rather we stay at a distance therefore I got close and personal to show what really makes a flower unique.
This painting is done in oil on an 8x10 canvas.
I was born and raised in Romania until the age of thirteen where I acquired my attraction towards art. I would spend hours drawing in my grandparents garden. Although my drawings didn't make much sense at the time I kept on trying. Then I moved to the United States where I attended highschool and was placed in paitning instead of a drawing class. My first words to the teacher were "I am better at drawing and I don't think I am going to do very well in this painting class". I then proceeded to get a second year of painting from the same teacher. After a break from painting I decided to take a painting class in college and now I am painting whenever I have some free time. I would say that I am closest to realism in terms of my artstyle.
