Lost in the Lilac cluster…

My aim with this acrylic painting was to include dimensionality between the background and the dense layers of Lilac flowers. As my usual inspiration, a photograph of mine loosely guided my composition and lighting, especially in the background areas. I also attempted a more “painterly” method, adding some paint depth in the Lilac blossoms (not easy to show in this two dimensional photograph). The undependable Chicago summer weather this year has kept me from my plein air practice. Copyright 2019 Pamela Breitberg


  1. Thank you so much! In a way I feel it’s a combination of a pent up want to be creative along with gentle guidance from a teacher as well as TIME since being being retired. All leads to fun with new challenges!
