The price is as matted and framed. Contact artist for photos of art as framed. A close-up of a gorgeous white gardenia. The white petals are painted in a traditional watercolor style, by leaving the white of the paper in the brightest places. For me, part of the challenge was painting white petals against a white background, for a delicate and feminine effect. The bloom is nestled in a luxurious nest of shiny green leaves and twisting buds. I painted this at the Denver Botanic Gardens in the Orangery, where the scent is a delight. I love these elegant flowers, and the contrast between the white blossoms and the dark shadows among the leaves. They make me think of finer times and gentler ways.
