Cherry Blossoms and Goldfinches Triptych

I got a commission to do a cherry blossom and goldfinch triptych based on a similar watercolor painting from my etsy shop. The client, happyasaclam, has her own shop where she uses recycled sterling silver, among other things, to design and create beautiful jewelry. You should definitely take a look at her shop. Each piece is unique and sophisticated.

Last night, at 3:30 am I could not sleep because I had all these ideas for the painting and I just had to work on it. By 8:30 I was happy with what I had done, and could declare it complete. :)
I wanted to share the finished product with you all. They're each 11 x 14 and will be framed above her bed, individually.

Above is a picture showing you how each connects to each other.

I must say that the pictures really flatten out the color, and I believe they look a lot better in real life. The cherry blossoms are based on photos I took of the cherry trees in the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris.
I hope she, and you, enjoys them!

  1. Congrats! The middle flower on the bottom picture looks like a pig's head...was that on purpose?

  2. Gorgeous. Oh man, I love these Becca. We have a painting of yours that I'm dying to put up now that we have our walls painted, but I want to frame it right.

    These are sooooo lovely. And you, my friend, are sooo talented.
