I don't normally paint flowers. I try every so often and usually wipe the results. I have struggled with them a lot in the past. I have these four small 4" x 4" paintings that I feel are successful. I especially like them all grouped together!
I've added a block to the back of these that allows me to hang them without a frame. I like the simple look.
I wanted to make a quick post to let you all know that even though I haven't been posting regularly in a while, I plan to get back at it soon. Unexpected personal events have been keeping me from my studio. But I am still taking photos and planning paintings. Once life settles down I'll be ready to paint and I can't wait to get back at it.
Here is an older painting of mine that I really love. I hope everyone is enjoying Spring this year!
Another grandson with the cutest smile. This is from an older photo so I have to do something more current soon. But I just couldn't resist trying this one! This little guy is about to have a new cousin to play with!
I loved the color of the shadow on his face! Lots of warm and cool spots. I used a lot of purple!
My mind is all about family right now with a new grandson due any day. So because that is where my heart is right now, I'm painting grandsons! This little cheese-ball will be a big bro very very soon! He looks pretty happy about that!
Hope everyone is enjoying the warmer weather that is slowing showing up!
They look sun baked and joyful playing in the surf! I'm still having fun with color and trying to push my limits. I just loved the cool turquoise waters at the top and red violet sand. This is also a new size for me. The sides of this cradled board will be stained a dark brown so that it can be hung as is.
In other news, we are still house hunting and getting our house ready for sale. I've finally gotten in a weekly art class that I was on the waiting list for. Yay! So I'll at least have one day put aside for painting. Thank you to everyone who still comes to visit and comment. It really means so much to me to hear from you. I will once again be commenting regularly also once things settle down here. I apologize for being so unavailable.
