"Still Life with Gladiolas"
"Still life with Gladiolas"
12 x 16 Watercolor
I have been working on this painting a week and finally it is finished....I think. Sometimes it is hard to decide if you are finished! I may tweak the shadows a bit and make them darker. This is back to my more realistic style, from which it is hard to depart! Hope you like this painting; your comments are appreciated.
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.
