Buy a Print of Dahlia's DesireThere’s a little gallery in the Village called Charmingwall, that for a time has been hosting a monthly exhibit, The 6×6 Project, where artists from far and wide create pieces that are exactly 6″x6″, on canvases they provide.

The show ends this December, however, so I decided it was imperative that I get a piece in before it closes, and the result, was Dahlia’s Desire.

Inspired by photos I took at Pike’s Place Market during a recent trip to Seattle, I chose a particularly brilliant dahlia as the focal point of the piece, whose come hither look (to me, anyway!) was purely irresistible!

Please feel free to click on the thumbnails below to see how the piece progressed from start to finish.
