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
Monday, January 6, 2014
8 x 10 Watercolor
There are always flowers blooming in Florida and I found several interesting things in the garden to arrange in a little bouquet to paint. There are three Allamanda blooms with leaves, two leaves from a Poinsettia, and a red Christmas Cactus that is still blooming. I used only the three Primary colors in this painting, just to limit my palette somewhat. Hope you like it! Your comments are always appreciated. Click on the painting for a close up view. The splatters of blue paint are intentional, by the way!
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.
