Study 94: Art Resolutions-Flattening the Flower Garden

Art Resolutions is a self-imposed initiative to create an art study everyday for a year.

If you haven’t consciously connected the dots over the last week of postings, design is on my mind. As the last vestiges of my garden wither to brown and start dropping seeds, I find myself trying to preserve the color to feed my hue haunted winter soul. At the same time, I experiment with reducing them to flat design. To date, the one I like best is the geranium. The one below has been an opportunity to abstract petunias and play with design elements in a border. There are elements that work in this study, so expect to see it again. In the meantime, I think I may retrieve my geraniums before the frost and see if I can winter them for next year, begin to embrace the autumn color, and hope it and I enjoy a long fall season.
