Memories smell like flowers by alifann Memories smell like flowers by alifann
I painted one of my fav photographs from Nadya Kulikova [link]. This painting was great lesson in terms of light, transparency and using limited amount of colours, not to mention curtains !. I still look back at this piece and wish I could have improved some stuff, lines for one thing.

Oil on Canvas 40" by 30"inch
Photographer: Nadya Kulikova [link]

Memories smell like flowers, a fine evocation in oils from ~alifann.

When I think of the memories that come from smelling a flower, it occurs to me that there are 2 contrasting venues where flowers dominate the gathering: weddings and funerals.  Or is that just 1 venue?  :) (Smile)   Beautiful work here.  I don't know why you would think you had to improve on it.  It is perfectly complete as is.
