Flowers and Copper Pot on Tabletop The highlights on the edges of the plants give this painting an unusual feel of being something more than they actually appear to be. They have an exquisite antique feel but the highlights bring the floral display to another level of beauty and serenity. The painting on the wall seems to be oriental, perhaps Chinese?
Zinnias and Gladiolas This seems to catch the flowers just at the point of wilting, not quite but just about to. The lack of highlights seen in Flowers and Copper Pot on Tabletop seems to catch this passing of the perfect floral display that is just passing its prime in beauty. There is a certain sadness in the painting, the transience of life.
Cow Lying Down This is not your ordinary cow. The soft lines and and alert face make it something other. This cow has its own distinct form and personality wonderfully portrayed.
Miss Florence's This seems to catch the crisp lines of the building which are offset by the autumnal feeling of the flora, a time which has passed and which will never be again.
Excellent post which I thoroughly enjoyed. S/S
