It's been a while



Painting this was a bit of a challenge. I find about half way through a painting i get sort of lost? This time i stepped away for a few days. My inspiration has been and is my garden,which is just beautiful this year. Filled with natures surprises,such as self seeding unplanned Cleome. Back to the painting, I was stumped so i sectioned of the painting and began working on small areas. this gave me more an understanding. At any rate i came up with this and as i was painting it dawned on me that it has rather a tissue paper collage sort of feel. I think it was the yellow gamboge (D.S). Wonderful paint... Glad to be back!

Another beauty. I don't know how avoid making mud when you mix such beautiful colors together.

Glad you're back too. I don't imagine you are sitting out in your garden painting though, with the skeeter air force. The painting really is wonderful and tissue-paper like!

Enjoy the rest of your summer!
