I didn't draw this flower it started out with a yellow wash. Then each morning i would add more color and detail. I used a photo as of sunflowers as my study but the colors directed my every impulse.

It was really exciting to look in on the painting each morning and add a paint here and there. An art fix for the day before work.

Good Morning

It's been a while since my last post. Most paintings have fallen short of my expectations. Time is on side though, summer months equal R&R. (rest and relaxation).

Mom's Day

Painting after painting have been utter disasters. I think i haven't spent enough time thinking about the painting in the pre- painting stage... quite typical of me and my impulsive self. I have freedom issues. I was about to abandon this until i started to play a bit more to try to salvage it. The texture in the photo is quite interesting ? It doesn't appear on the painting itself? Sad thing is there is the most delicious bit of orange in corner that is not in the photo that i so enjoy.

The world is a better place with good moms... simply irreplaceable.
