My new “little flower” class is ready – and I just adore it!

click here for class info

I have been painting still life artworks for over 20 years now, but I had not done so for a very long time…and I now remember why I loved them so much way back then 🙂

My desire to conquer the palette knife got me started again, and although I was not entirely happy with those early results (you may have seen them on facebook or instagram!) it did encourage me to pick up the brush for another go 🙂

And so I happily painted away to my heart’s content, these little flowers are a delight to create and really take you back to being a kid and the sense of play that sadly most of us probably lack these days.

Now I have created a little class with four petit fleurs… and a pear!

To celebrate I am giving away a free spot in this class.

  10. No way to pick just one! 😀 Rannunculas, Hydrangeas, Poppies…
    Watermelons ?

  12. Pansies for my great-grandmother. Lilacs for the beautiful scent and lily of the valley, which represents my name! I never used to care for flowers and overtime I’m beginning to appreciate it and admire them more and more. ❤️???

  13. Just shared on Facebook and I love your work! Peonies are one of my favorites along with hydrangeas and camellias ?

  14. Hi, my favorite flower is “renoncule” in french. She’s so beautiful :-)))

  20. Love your art!! Love the depth and texture, yet with a sense of ease!! How great would it be to win a spot in your class?! Thank you for the opportunity and sharing your are with us!!
    Oh and my favorite flowers are gerbera daisies, and very into peonies these days.

  21. This looks awesome, would love to win! My favorite flower is trillium!

  22. My favorite flower has to be the orchid-they are so colorful and delicate! Thank you for this opportunity 🙂

  23. My favorite flower is the Sweet Pea but I also love many others. You know I’ve followed your posts about your palette knife discoveries. I’ve been encouraged by them.

  24. My most favourite flowers are Gerberas. They come in such vibrant and beautiful colours and just speak sunshine and happiness to me. Also when I look at them I see beautiful eyes with the petals being the eyelashes. They make me happy. Thank you for the opportunity, I just love your art.

  25. My favorite flower is a Gerber Daisy! I love the bright colors and the simple beauty. These seem so happy to me. Thank you for this possible opportunity!

  26. I am so excited about this class!! My daughter getting g married this Friday and after that!! ME time and this is going to be my first project! Winning would be amazing !!Have you ever paid for a wedding before???

  27. I truly love them all – even the dandelion. My favorite vegetable is the artichoke because it speaks to my personality. A bit prickly on the outside at times but take the time to get to the worthwhile inside.

  28. These are lovely paintings, and I can sense your pride and joy for them! My favorite flower is the sunflower. I have a special place in my heart for many others as they remind me of cherished family members. My Grandmother Florence had an amazing garden, but her house had many teacups filled with violets. My Grandmother Millie grew amazing roses (I still have one she gave me over 15 years ago), and she had an amazing patch of Lily of the Valley by her patio. My mom loved so many flowers, but peonies were her favorite. My daughter also loves peonies partly, I think, because of the special bond she had with her grandmother.

  29. My favorite flower ? is a peony. Yay least today. They are getting ready to bloom in Michigan.
    Love ? later in the summer too.
    Heck, I really love all flowers. I’m a landscape architect.

  30. My favorite flower is Liatris. For me is a spectacular flower by its color, shape and blooming. Let me tell you a bit of the amazing Liatris.

    Liatris flowers form along the tall spikes, and these fuzzy, thistle-like blossoms, which are usually purple, flower from the top to the bottom rather than in the traditional bottom to top blooming of most plants.

    Toni, your flowers are adorable. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win a class spot. Fingers crossed!!!!

  31. My favorite flower is the iris. I remember them from my childhood. Love the color purple.
