I agree, weekends are too short! Where does one go to protest about this? LOL!!!
I love the two versions of this drawing. Was it inspired by a Passion flower??

Margaret Ann said...

Good call on that Bonny...wish I could say it was! LOL :)

Actually, it just "grew" from my imagination...paint first, then ink as the final layer...:)

Gorgeous - I love the colours in your work lately!! The watercolour fairy must be sitting on your shoulder!!!!! (Does she have a relative that can come and sit on mine???...)

I think it interesting to know that the color came before the ink. I like to hear how paintings and drawings evolve. Gorgeous colors.

Love the colors and the day/night effect, too. When I was a child, a neighbor had a fence covered with flowers that looked like this a little. I think it was called a passion flower.

It would make a lovely pillow, as Anita said!

I love all the colors. So rich. I am especialy drawn to the rich purply one with green in the middle. Nice work.

Both are beauteous! Love the inversion one. The colors are always such a pleasant surprise.

I bet you did while sitting by the road waiting for us to go by. lol

I love the softness and the muted, flowing colors of the flower and leaves. I would love to actually watch you create one of these beautiful pieces.
