Flirting with Rivera
Inspired by Diego Rivera
14 x 14 Interior Oil Paining on Canvas
Art within Art Series
I always found Calla Lilies to be a romantic flower.
Diego Rivera must have felt the same way as he used this flower is so many of his compositions.
Did you ever see some of the huge murals he did with this flower? He was so in tuned to the Mexican culture and did many murals depicting the Mexican culture that I was surprised that at one point his work was considered Art Deco.
I took a chance with the color palette on this painting with adding mauve to the other colors but I really like the interest it created and I think it worked out really well.
Thanks to all my collectors for all your purchases and commission for this series.
More to come.
Have a great weekend.
