What a great style the artist has created. Using many layers of wax and paint Eby is able to create wonderful depth in her flower portraits. From a design standpoint its fun to concentrate just on the look and organic shape of flowers. We aren’t distracted by other elements such as the ground. Eby’s work reminds me of Lynn Boggess and Richard Schmid.
Schmid is a master painter of flowers in traditional oils. His work has a great feeling of depth as he will often use pure color and a palette knife to create a focal point. Lynn Boggess paints the landscape using cement trowels. All three artists create visually stunning works with great depth using different methods and tools.
