Sarah Sedwick  Creamy Rose oil on canvas 10"x8" 2011

Sarah Sedwick has been posting delightfully fresh and lively paintings to her popular blog with amazing frequency since 2008. It wasn't easy for me to choose just two examples to share from her many flower paintings!  

"Still Life with Iris" has an arresting, elegant composition and bold simplicity of form, while "Creamy Rose" is painted with a breezy and confident efficiency that completely wins me over. 

In honor of Lisa Daria Kennedy's beautiful flower paintings, we'll spend the month of August considering paintings, drawings and photographs of flowers (a broccoli plant is a flowering plant!). If you have an image of a painting, drawing or photograph of a flower that you admire (someone else's work) and a few thoughts you'd like to share, please email me and I'll set up a post for you.


  1. Yes, I've seen her work and it is magnificent. Happy Painting.

  2. I love her work! to me, "Still Life With Iris" is just a perfect painting in every way.
