It amazes me how much faster and the improvement that is occurring simply from painting everyday. I slept in this morning. (It's hard to get out from underneath the flannel sheet on these cold winter mornings.) Then we went to the grocery store, I had to go to the veterinarians and then take our foster daughter, Rachel to work. I really didn't think I would get much done, painting wise. But, check it out- I squeezed this one in and I love it! I am really into thinking about the design, which basically means how a space is filled in order to create the biggest impact.
I took this close-up photo of a purple iris last fall. I was attracted to the way the shapes filled the space in the photo, as well as the dramatic contrast between lights and darks. This one will go on e-bay before to long. For now it gets pinned up on the wall, along with a few others I will have to let go of before to long. I absolutely love when I hear from someone who says they are really enjoying a work. That is a blessing!
