Angelique Tulip

Angelique Tulip painting by Leslie Montana

Title: Angelique Tulip | Medium: Acrylic on Board

Featured in the 
New York Times during an exhibit at the Montclair Art Museum in New Jersey, I was honored to have been invited to participate in the show Montclair Artists, Then and Now. Painters including George Innes who lived and worked in Montclair, NJ at the turn of the century were included in this art exhibit seeking to bring notoriety to the vibrant art scene re-emerging in the present. Angelique Tulip is a painting I created when I was experimenting with highly-pigmented acrylic paint layered in thin washes on smooth white gessoed board. I worked from life using flowers that I'd grown in my garden. With many ruffles and subtle color variations, I found the abstract qualities of this mandala-like flower and its composition intriguing.

Museum-quality giclee prints are available of Angelique Tulip. They are crafted on smooth 100% rag watercolor paper and have deckle edges on all four sides. The reproduction of this painting looks great float-mounted with a neutral tone wood or gold frame. Please
