Pantone Candy Cane Pink Building- 40x30x1.5 Acrylic on canvas
A Slice of Life: The Pantone Candy Cane Pink Building is a 40x30x1.5 Acrylic gallery wrapped painting and is part of my Georgetown, DC collection.
Here’s the story…
There is just something that is unique and attractive about The Greenworks Florist – Georgetown location. If you are on social media it pops up everywhere and is the backdrop for many photo opportunities.
The building, which is painted Pantone Candy Cane Pink, is even more magnificent in person! I was moved to paint an image of it in my expressionistic painterly style that I’m known for.
Using my artistic license, I decided to contrast the cool pink with a warm and glowing sidewalk and adjacent buildings. My painting tells the story – “Look at what humanity has done to create beauty in the middle of the city.”
The way that I first came to love the building and the ones surrounding is that my youngest son is a Georgetown Hoya and the pink jewel is close to the university. I wanted to leave him with a parting gift of Lucky Bamboo and this is where I found it… at the Pink Florist. This building holds special meaning for me.
In 2018 I held a show featuring this painting as well as others in my Georgetown collection at a professor’s home (He lives right around the corner.) You can learn more about my show and adventures in Georgetown by reading my Enlightened Artist Blog.
