This painting was featured in our weekly email on 4/30/15 along with the following gallery comments:
Leota Williams Loop was the darling of Kokomo, where she made her home while maintainting a cabin in Nashville — the setting for many of her landscapes. But it was floral still lifes that were her passion and for which she is most known. These were typically large and showy — making today’s painting interesting as it’s a rare, small size. Floral Still Life, as we’ve ingeniously titled it, features a mixed garden bouquet and a very representative offset composition filled with the drama she liked to pull from her arrangements. It’s been cleaned and conserved and is housed in the likely-original frame. A very versatile small size that fits almost anywhere. How about in your car? A sweet little piece from an Indiana artist who rejoiced in the celebration of all things floral.
