Read from the Book

With this book, I hope to demonstrate how the principles and elements of art and design can be explored and experienced when painting flowers in oil and acrylic. Oil paints-and the thrill of applying them from palette to brush to canvas-has captivated and inspired me since I was 12 years old. Over the past 38 years, my style has grown from realistic to contemporary, but the range of tones and hues, color theory, and mixing continues to pique my interest to this day. Every new painting is an adventure from which I learn something new and exciting. I hope my paintings portray the joy and excitement of everyday life. -Marcia Baldwin
