Artist: Debra Hurd
Title: Flowers hydrangeas in a vase stil life

Debra Hurd studied art at the Southern University in Chattanooga, Tennessee and at the Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota,Florida For 15 years she was a graphic designer in Florida and in Austin,Texas. She is also an accomplished pianist. 
I feel that this is applied to the elements and principles of texture because of the way it is painted how you can tell that its not a flat painting, that the oil paint was put on not by a brush but by a palate knife.
I chose this piece because of the color that is used and how well they all blend together, and the use of texture that if you were to touch it you could feel how rough it is.
