If a comparison has to be made with Eduard Manet’s Last Flowers (see the two before postings) the floral paintings of Nancy Tips I think come closest to that legacy.
This is the text I found at Southern Vermont Arts Center where Tips and Bielen exhibited last year.
She has her own website: http://nancytips.com/. A visit is recommended.
I discovered and collected pictures of some 40 floral paintings by Nancy Tips. Choosing a selection for this posting was an impossible task. I could easily fill 4 postings with the same diversity and quality.
Let me know what you think by leaving a comment.
