Original watercolor painting on Arches Cold Press watercolor paper. Lilacs have been one of the artist's favorite subjects, which she returns to paint often. Memories of the sweet smelling blossoms linger from her childhood. Fragrant Bouquet shows how her artistic style has evolved, becoming much looser and playful than her previous paintings. The artist uses very large round brushes, encouraging the colors to mix and blend on the paper. Strokes made with the side of her brush add to the spontaneous feeling of this painting. The painting is finished with an off white mat.
