Flames of a Flower. Brilliant. Colorful. Unrestrained. Watercolors. Want more?……
Flower Flames Design
Bright red scarlet.
Scorching heat reaching upwards and beyond.
Just a hint of cobalt teal blue to accent in the corner.
Yesterday’s cactus blooms with their wonderful flame shapes stirred my imagination. Leading to the creation of this colorful watercolor abstract.
The flower petals could become…..
chrysanthemums, Christmas cactus, dahlias, synthetic dyed sunflowers or many others.
I felt that in this case, today, they wanted to be unconfined.
- No boundaries.
- Melting. Merging. Soft edges.

These 3 Views of the same subject, the same painting, provides an interesting selection.
I nearly always rotate and ‘virtually’ crop all paintings.
It reveals so many new perspectives to the scene or subject that my first glance, my first thoughts didn’t even register.
I included these, in order for you to get an idea of my process. And to choose for yourself which version you prefer.
Today’s paintings and post was Inspired by 12 Significant Photographs from yesterday.
This photograph is a Tropical ‘twist’ using the cactus blooms and their flame like petals in a vibrant Hawaiian approach.

Watercolor Abstract, Flames of a Flower was a fun and bold painting. Inspired by the photographs taken yesterday. Influenced.
