Facebook followers! Check out the Honolulu Museum's Facebook page where my painting is posted. I entered a contest where artists were invited to enter a work of art inspired by one in the museum. I was inspired by Fantin La-Tour's Vase of Peonies. I had never tried anything like this before, but then, I thought, oh yeah, I know how to do vase and flowers! Although I didn't win, it was a fun exercise to re-interpret one of my favorite paintings in the Impressionist Gallery, trying to capture La-Tour's exquisite use of light to create the lushness of those petals.
