Seven foot flowers? Um, yes please! I am completely in love with these big, beautiful, blooms {acrylic on canvas} by Canadian artist Bobbie Burgers. Nothin’ like some confident brush strokes, a few stunning color choices, and a giant canvas to transform a traditional subject into a contemporary masterpiece. Gorgeous! Oh, and if you’re in Toronto you can see her work at Bau-Xi Gallery, April 18 ~ 30.

 {I had to include a few of those shots with Bobbie in her studio, just to show the fabulous scale of these pieces. Oh boy. I think I might want to stretch a giant canvas for the first time in YEARS.}

    I am SWOONING over here!!! Wowza! I am SO drawn to flowers right now – smelling them, photographing them, drawing them, and, well swooning over other people’s extraordinary paintings of them!

    Wow. I love the colours. Her flowers bloom with dynamism and grace. They pop out of the painting like a punch but they have a motherly essence to which makes them sing. I love it. Absolutely stunning work.
