Brendan H Johnston  Painter and sculptor living and working in NYC #brendanhjohnston

Here is the full image of ‘The Flower Painter’!! This life size painting was a pleasure and an enormous challenge to paint. @katiegwhipple posed for me at night and I painted the dress and flowers during the day. It took me just over two months to complete 😳

This piece was inspired by the Art Nouveau works of Alphonse Mucha. It was also inspired by my lovely wife @katiegwhipple who is a floral painter and spent many hours posing for me 🙏

Another couple details of a large painting I recently finished of my lovely wife @katiegwhipple. She patiently spent dozens of hours posing for me over the last couple months. The painting is 34x50 and life size, so was quite a commitment for both of us. I did however paint the shirt and skirt posed on a mannequin so as not to completely torture Katie 😁
This painting will be a part of the ‘Americans in Paris’ Show opening @arcadiagallery on May 12, 6-8pm!! #arcadiacontemporary #oilpainting #fromlife #portrait #katiegwhipple #instaart

Corner detail of a recent painting that will also be heading to @arcadiagallery for the ‘Americans in Paris’ show. This was my first time playing around with pattern and floral design. And yes, I did ‘gild the lily’ 😉

A couple more O’Haras for a rainy Wednesday. ➡️ for details :)

Detail of a series of O’Hara roses. I had a lot of fun composing this set! The ones in shadow turned out to be way easier to paint than the ones in full light. .
