Upper Bidwell Wildflowers (for Desi)

Feb 20, 2016 | Paintings, Process

I began this painting last year, after the loss of a dear friend. The flowers and insects are all found in Upper Bidwell Park, a beautiful oak woodland with winding streams and big grassy meadows, near my her home in Chico. The actual process of painting mostly took place on Friday afternoons during my daughter’s naptime (and while I listened to many a podcast). I made a video to show the piece from start to finish—many of the photos are terrible (you can probably tell at which point I finally broke down and bought a new iPhone), but one of these days I’ll work out a better way to photograph in-progress paintings.
