Stargazer Lily: Golden Star, By Canadian Artist Kim Blair

Golden Star
20x16 oil on canvas

This painting needs to be seen again.  I posted it a little while ago, but whenever I walk past my gallery room in my home-studio it keeps calling out to me... asking for attention.  It looks so beautiful displayed on the easel... all pink and curvy... like a gorgeous satin dress swirled about a model's sleek shoulders, offering the illusion that a strap might fall at any moment and reveal a bit more.

For some reason it makes me think of the John Singer Sargent's painting called 'Madame X'.  Not that I think my painting style is like Mr. Sargent, rather, the curves of this pink lily brought to mind the curves of the woman in the black dress.

Floral, Sunflower Painting, 'Sun Totems', by Canadian Artist Kim Blair

Sun Totems

This Sunflower painting sold the other day and now has a home in Lethbridge, which is in southern Alberta, near the border with the USA.  The collector who purchased this piece said that he is drawn to my use of vibrant colors... which goes to show that if you paint what you love it will come through the painting, and that energy will resinate with right person. 

Have a look at my 'Gallery Page' for all available paintings.
