Still Life of Chrysanthemums by Soren Emil Carlsen

Oil on Canvas, 54.5 x 72 inches


This painting is now on my desktop. I found this still life while looking through some online auctions. It's nice to imagine owning something like this. I like the balance of the light flowers and dark earthy background, the quiet drama of life and death, and the contrast of invisible and expressive brushstrokes.

I had such a wonderful summer weekend spending time with family. I hope you enjoyed your weekend too. I also decided on a composition for my new painting. It feels great to be painting instead of planning. The subject is a closed Mom and Pop store.
