Floral

Floral paintings inspired by the Dutch Masters

 Inspired equally by the beauty of nature and the mastery of the old Dutch masters who painted extravagant floral compositions, Holcomb uses the floral motif to ease his mind.   While working on large series of paintings, Holcomb always has at least one floral in progress alongside. This practice has helped to open up his work as he thinks through the complexities of the challenges of the work in progress.   You can view detail images of Floral on Teal No. 4  here  and Floral on Dark Green  here .
