"Midnight Cosmos"
~ Late one afternoon I noticed a striking cluster of graceful pink Cosmos framed against a backdrop of tall, deep green Iris and knew this would be a future painting. I greatly admire how these flowers that appear so fragile and delicate manage to survive and even thrive in very harsh weather conditions. I love "all things pink" and enjoy painting many different varieties of pink flowers. This painting was named a Finalist in the 2010 "Flowers & Gardens" world-wide competition #56 sponsored by International Artist magazine....published in their April/May issue Vol. 72, distributed in 21 countries.

  1. Norma, I love your work. especially the Midnight Cosmos which I saw in International Artist mag. I was just looking through some of my art mag's and saw your work again and had to look you up on the web to see what else you were doing. I am still trying to find my style so to speak with painting but Oil is where I find my feet landing most of the time. My watercolors end up looking like guache paitings everytime and I can't seem to enjoy the process. I love your use of color and form. Some of your paintings seem to have an Albrecht Durer look to them which is really unique and pretty cool. Your one of those artists who's style is different enough to stand out from the crowd and make one sit up and take notice. Keep up the beautiful work. As soon as I can afford it I will be purchasing a giclee of the Midnight Cosmos. I can see that on my wall and I would never tire of looking at it. God Bless you in your work. Randi Duranceau.
