A tip from hmstrjam via twitter. Bella Foster’s floral painting fits my dark background/bright color combo bill. The dark background reminds me of old Dutch floral paintings from the 1600’s. I like the carefree style of Bella’s paintings. I think on a blog post smacked up against each other the paintings might seem overwhelming. Imagine them on a wall with lots of space for the compositions to breath. Beautiful. See more on Bella’s website: bellafoster.com.
