Floral Series – Watercolor Fine Art by Shirley Kleppe

The Floral Series began as an experimental but developed into a full-blown series of work over a number of years. The floral paintings began in the early 1980’s and lasted for ten years. The paintings had indoor and outdoor settings, but it was the flowers that held my attention. This was a time of great transition of my family. We moved from Phoenix, to Oklahoma City, and finally back to Phoenix. These moves were dictated by my husband’s work responsibilities. Looking backward over time, place, and paintings, flowers gave me peace and solace during such unsettling transitions. I made twenty paintings in the decade, reflecting on the rapid changes of beauty and life.
