BERNARD JANSON ; OIL PAINTING KNIFE.

FLOWERS GALLERY

In this gallery of vibrant and colorful paintings, I would like to show the cheerful and glory beauty of flowers.

Painting flowers symbolizing fragility, brievety of life, fleeting beauty, but also delicacy is for the artist painter I am a real pleasure. Their ruffled petals, sometimes ripped, their singular shapes, their luxuriant aspect, their blazing colors are also a real challenge to paint.

Over the centuries and mainly during the classical time, there was a powerful symbolism about flowers. Generaly flowers represented positives allegories such as: spring, wisdom, hopeful, but also negatives allegories such as decay, vanity, selfishness.

Some flowers represented symbols like:
Love and vanity for tulips,
Egoism for daffodils,
Graceful and style for jasmine,
Commitment for sunflowers,
Love, purity, beauty for roses.

By now most of those symbols have been forgotten, but I think some of them are always in our collective subconscious and for me, in my artwork, they are always looming in a symbolic background.

Insted of painting the ever-present bunch of flowers, I prefered to paint flowers in their natural environment, that seems to me to be more interesting and original.
