Romantic Paintings of Lush Flowers

Oklahoma-based painter Carolina Elizabeth has a penchant for painting succulent fruit and flowers, with all their luxurious textures. Although the small-scale oil paintings look like creations from centuries past — as noted on The Jealous Curator, where we first spotted the artist’s work — the addition of Chanel perfume bottles and other beautiful details keep the artworks modern and young. They’re the perfect romantic visual treat for Valentine’s Day. See more of Elizabeth’s gorgeous paintings in our gallery.
