The Flower Collection

We can probably all agree, 2020 has been quite a challenging year! 

Surrounding myself with nature and spending time painting these flowers has brought light and joy into my life. Created with love and care, I hope this collection does the same for you. Additionally, this is a great way to support an artist while helping to bring beauty into your home.

 

These original paintings are only available right here, on this page. If you are interested in purchasing a painting, contact me at tricia@triciamcwhorter.com and I will be in touch ASAP to arrange payment and shipping since I will personally be packaging and mailing each painting. Remember, as there is only one of each original pastel painting, please act quickly to avoid missing out on your favorite. There is a 15-day, money back guarantee if the painting fails to meet your expectations.

Peace Rose

SOLD

14" x 11"

$797

The Peace Rose has always been one of my favorite roses. I love the variations in color as the bud opens from pinks on the outside to the yellows and creams inside. I like to meditate on peace as I enter the image and get lost in its many layers.

It arrives with a pre-cut white mat and self-adhesive spacers to mount on the back of the mat to keep it raised slightly from the painting surface itself, one technique recommended when framing a pastel (instructions are included).

Yellow Daylily

11” x 14”

$797

This flower was blooming in the garden on the day my oldest daughter was married, so it holds a special place in my heart. Daylilies only bloom for a day, so they serve as a reminder to seize the moment. We should celebrate those moments of beauty and joy we come across regardless of how brief they may be. But this one, of course, will bloom for a very long time!

Red Hibiscus

14" x 11"

$797

When I see a red hibiscus I always want to pick it and put it behind my ear. That’s what I did when I first discovered them on a trip to Hawaii when I was in my early thirties. I have always loved the rich, intense color of their petals and how they invite you into their very centers. This is a good one to lose yourself in — I did, a lot, while I was painting it!

Plumeria

SOLD

11" x 14"

$797

The first time I encountered this flower, I was on my honeymoon and was greeted with a plumeria lei when I arrived in Hawaii with my new husband. The scent of the plumeria lei was so intoxicating and exotic and I am transported back to that memory when I look at this painting. It was really fun to paint!

Viola

14” x 11”

$797

I have always loved violas and pansies. All pansies are actually violas but not all violas are pansies, something I didn’t learn until recently. This one was growing in the planter outside my studio window and I was drawn to the beautiful shading of blue on the outside to the yellow of its center. I knew when I saw it, that I had to put it up on my easel.

Stargazer Lily

11" x 14"

$797

I love how showy and extravagant the Stargazer Lily is! It is truly one of those flowers that you simply can’t walk past. It’s so beautiful that whenever I see one, I always lean down to inhale its heavenly scent.

Yellow Calendulas 1 

11" x 14"

$647

I created Yellow Calendulas 1 and Yellow Calendulas 2 as companion pieces, although they can each stand on their own. I had picked a bouquet of calendulas from the garden in front of my house and I just loved how velvety their petals were and how each flower seemed to enjoy snuggling next to its neighboring bloom. They seemed friendly and comforting.

Sunflower with Bee

11" x 14"

$647

Our garden had a lot of sunflowers this year and they really pulled me toward them when I went outside. As I got close to this one, I noticed a bee that had also been drawn in close. Sunflowers just might be one of the happiest looking flowers in the garden.

Two Red Poppies

14" x 11"

$647

I have always loved the intense red and the contrasting black in the petals of red poppies. It’s the kind of dynamic flower you can easily lose yourself in.

Oriental Garden Poppy

14" x 11"

$647

I was thrilled this summer when the gardens on the property where I’m staying became filled with Oriental Poppies. I took many photos and loved making paintings from some of them.

Oriental Poppy

14" x 11"

$647

One of my favorite flowers, for sure. Perhaps it is how graphic their coloration is. They are bold and striking and they always make me happy.

Purple Clematis

11” x 14”

$447

There is a gorgeous vine that grows outside my living room and in summer it becomes filled with these intensely purple flowers. I picked this one and it spent a few days in my kitchen window. I loved how the light from outside illuminated its petals.

White Moth Orchid

12” x 10”

$447

I’ve been impressed by showy Phalaenopsis plants (also known as moth orchids) for years. I was delighted when I discovered how easy it is to grow them. They come in an amazing variety of colors and sizes and can be quite affordable, especially when you realize the blooms can last several months. For these, and numerous other reasons, I absolutely love them.

Peachy Rose

11” x 11”

$447

I was taken by how tight the bud was in the center of this rose as the outer petals slowly began to unfold around it. I also loved the delicate peach tones of the rose itself. I thought this flower was perfect in a square format, something I don't often do.

White Clematis

9” x 11”

$447

These giant clematis blossoms (8” across) grew on a vine outside my studio window this summer. They were so showy and majestic that I simply had to paint this one.

Yellow Rose

SOLD

Yellow roses have always been my favorite, possibly because of the sweet smell of peaches some of them have. This particular rose felt so soft and lush to me. The petals, as I painted them. seemed almost like lovely yellow clouds as they softly unfolded themselves.

Calla Lily

SOLD

There is something so classic and yet sensual about calla lillies! It is easy to get lost in the soft, luxurious textures of this flower.

Mystic’s Rose and Agapanthus

14” x 11”

$447

This pale pink rose was from a bush I planted in my backyard when I lived in Windsor, California. It ended up growing about 7’ tall (it was a freestanding bush, not a climber!) and for about nine months a year it produced huge, lush, intoxicatingly fragrant flowers. I loved how it looked next to the agapanthus in that garden.

Daffodils

8” x 10”

$447

This painting started it all — The Flower Collection. This vase, from a dear friend, sat in my kitchen window with these daffodils and I was struck by how the light from outside illuminated both the vase and the blooms. I accidentally moved the camera as I got ready to take a photo of them and I loved the play of light and movement I captured. As I got into the painting, and really started layering in color, it ignited something in me that made me want to keep going and paint more flowers.
