The Darker Side of Me

Last weekend during the Marketplace event , I had a couple of antique dealers come into my studio/shop and comment on all the pink, cream, and white and then inquire whether or not I ever do any darker colored paintings? So in honor of their request I thought I would share with you some of my darker inspirations.


  1. I don't think you realize it, but you could paint anything your little heart desires! I don't think you realize that "yet" but I see it in the near future. Yep, you know me, I have all the answers, ha-ha! Still working on finding you a wall space at Country Roads. Our customers and "us" miss you!
    Take care, Sue

  2. These paintings are very striking Christie! Just beautiful. They are perfect for adding that little punch of "wow" to a room.

  3. Oh did my sister & I love it when you went to the dark side! She loved them for their more "French" feel and I because they remind me of the Flemish floral paintings I love! The darker background just makes your roses "pop"! Gorgeous!

  4. These are beautiful! Your roses really stand out against the dark background. They have a French look to them. I love your lighter ones too of course.

  5. Christie these would be such a lovely contrast to a light and airy interior. They are so stunning and I agree with M from oc cottage, they do remind me of the beautiful Flemish paintings.
    I am still so excited that you are blogging!!!
