Sweet Soul Music

A friend brought me these flowers when she came for dinner last week. They came from her own yard and they are beautiful.
I painted this the next morning after the dinner and plan to paint some more versions of this same vase. Maybe it will end up as many as Monet's haystack so!

Group Policy

Zinnias are one of the flower types that fascinate me. It is not easy for me to paint the layers of petals and make them become a solid form. For some reason I keep coming back for more punishment willingly.

Call Waiting

I have been admiring high key paintings lately; those with a good amount of light colors. Of course those light colors have to be balanced with some mid and dark values to be successful. A balancing act like juggling multiple telephone calls; thank goodness for call waiting.
