Flawed



FLAWED
is this week's theme over at Illustration Friday (yeah it is indeed Thursday, I am just squeaking in under the wire here!) This is a painting I did last spring, and it was the card image for my one person show at Sherry French Gallery in June. I remember the canvas was still wet when I photographed it. Down to the wire is my usual state I am afraid!

While painting the set up I became entranced with the big tear in the broad hydrangea leaf. Which I guess qualifies it for this week's theme of flawed.

Blue Hydrangea and Bagels, oil on canvas, 24 x 18 inches, 2008, Nancy Bea Miller

Proving that damage and flaws can still be arresting and beautiful. GREAT hydrangea!

I hadn't visited in a while, but I am so glad I came by this morning. Your paintings just get better and better. It is amazing how you can take an everyday set of objects (AND FOOD) and create a stillness and peace within your painting. Wonderful!

Blue hydrangeas and morning glories are my favorites. This is a wonderful still life~not flawed, but perfect.
