(And, no, I STILL haven't completed the book...)
I had a beautiful bunch of roses
gifted me by my sweetie for the first day of Spring
and have just now gotten around to painting
one of them.
The other two "flowers" were painted several weeks ago
with out any references...just my ole
imagination to rely on...
which didn't do the tulip any justice at all!
So...I have decided that
in the interest of becoming a better observer of floral life
I will make it a point to visit Trader Joe's
this week and treat myself to a
one of their exquisite floral bouquets...
and then paint like crazy until the "cows come home"!
There...I've said it...well, written it...
right here in public even.
Expect great things! :)
P.S. Does anyone out there have any good tips
how to create loose spatter
on a painting without it looking like
like a kindergarten paint war??
(...ie. see above...)
Yes??? Fingers and toes crossed...
Drop me a line...LOL:)

we must be mad with joy the whole time
to have such things about us."
