Well the few paintings I have completed lately have been scary bad. It seems I have lost my ability to do detailed paintings of chosen subjects. Instead I find myself considering color over everything. In this painting of Glads, Iwas sickend by the orange I used as and accent color.

I decided to try to salvage the painting by cropping it and adding pastel and wc pencils. So the result is ... not sure yet need to take a break and look at it later.

Meanwhile I just needed to post something.

The Calla's are from a wedding I attended this weekend.I placed them in depression glass sugar shaker. A send off into fall and back to work for me.I also attended the Detroit Jazz Festival this weekend,just terrific,great music for free. As for the watercolor,the flower spike in the middle of the flower needs a bit more yellow.Such a substantial flower,really lovely.
