Get your lily on....

For some reason this painting photographed giant, I have no clue why and well, I'm not going to change it. I haven't painted in a week or so I have been so preoccupied with life's problems so it was nice to sit and play. I got a little carried away scratching the lilies and I think I will add a little more of a dark color to center of the big lily,or not.
Fun news my future daughter-in-law actually wants to use one of my watercolors as a shower invitation. Now we just have to decide which one:)

For the doing...

Well Sunday, also known as fun day, was that indeed. I visited a bookstore and bought 2 new books; The Women, a novel about the women in Frank Lloyd Wright's life and Endurance Shackleton's incredible Voyage to Antarctica in 1914. I also visited an art store and bought a few pastels and some ink pens. I manged to use all of the new supplies on this painting. Like a kid in a toy store I couldn't wait to try them out. Who cares if the Lillie's centers are overworked!

Or in my case to greedily use your new stuff!

All things considered

Call me crazy, today I went outside in the wind and rain and cut pussy willow and forsythia branches,a spring time ritual. Unfortunately the good pussy willow branches were at the top of the bush. I noticed them while chatting to a friend and decided that they were just too beautiful to pass up. So I attempted to cut them while hanging out of an upstairs bedroom window. Amusing to anyone who would have witnessed it,but totally unsuccessful. Needless to say I fetched the ladder and loppers and away I went.Success.

As for the painting I painted this today. I am not loving the buds at the top, what was I thinking. I thought I would post this since it is the closest thing to a successful painting that I've had all week.
