Everyday I will be posting a painting I have created or am working on, plus comments, tips, and ideas relating to painting.
Flower Pots at Heathcote
9x12 acrylic on canvas
Thursday, March 7, 2013
I am painting a still life of lilies with a tea pot and lace. It is going slow as I have had some other things that had to be done other than painting, as always! For one thing, someone backed into my car, denting the fender and that has to be dealt with. But the painting is coming along and I am enjoying doing it. I think flowers are probably my favorite subject, whether in a still life or in a landscape. So stay turned...it will be finished soon!
Painting is my passion and I try to paint as much as possible everyday. I love gardening and decorating my home, but when it is hot like it is here in summer, I find my studio is where I want to be! I have also been writing a book about my experiences in the antique shop business. Writing a book is a lot of hard work, what with editing and trying to get one's ideas down in a concise and interesting manner, not to mention the frustrations of using the computer!! I've almost completed it, though. I love so many creative things, including quilting! There just is not enough hours in the day.
