Welcome to my Art Thursdays B.R.E.A.T.H.S. blog post where I invite you into my private art studio. I started off a few weeks ago introducing some of my first art pieces in my preteens with drawing and poetry, and mid twenties with my introduction to watercolor painting large scale realistic flowers. Because of my priorities with work and school, I took about 10yrs off from painting and started back up again in 2014. Below is a collage of my friend and I painting at Brushstrokes & Beverages, Long Beach, California.
Brainerd’s Brushstrokes – Acrylic Abstract Flowers: Part 1
The next two weeks, I am going to show you parts of my acrylic abstract flowers paintings I painted in my thirties and forties. The reason I switched to acrylic paint is because I love the bright colors, how easily it can be mixed or corrected, how fast it dries, and it adheres to just about anything making everything my canvas like rocks, cardboard, wood, glass, and plastic. Below are four of my acrylic abstract flower paintings on 16×20 canvas in chronological order, oldest first.
Thank you for reading and viewing,
Dr. Jaime Brainerd, Ed.D.

Wow – you are talented. This looks like so much fun! My daughter is the artist but I like to dabble – we have been watching YouTube acrylic painting lessons & enjoying our time together.
I love your poppies (both of them).
Thanks for sharing!
You are really talented. I love the colors in the Pink Poppies painting. Thank you for sharing!
The poppies are my favorites.I am looking forward to see your artwork.
OMG they are all GORGEOUS, what talent. Pink is one of my favorite colors for flowers but something about the orange California poppies caught my eye. I think it’s the combination of the vivid orange against the white picket fence! What a way to clear your mind while painting.
