Above are two large-scale floral pieces by Victoria Montesinos. These are prints on canvas that have been overpainted. Montesinos is a Mexican-born painter who currently lives and works in New York City. Her work focuses solely on close-ups of flowers.

Below are two tropical landscapes by Barbara McCann, who is based in Sarasota, Florida. McCann, who studied design and architectural illustration and later taught at Ringling College of Art & Design, travels all over the world to find inspiration for her lush, color-drenched landscapes.
