Jazzie Blues


Feeling kinda blue today with the weather being so cold, cloudy and gloomy. Sat down and painted this purple iris this afternoon to kinda chase the blues away. I think it helped get into the colors and listen to some jazzie music while painting. I listened to Jeremy Larson's new CD "Salvation Club" three times while getting this one done!! Beautiful painting music!

I found you through Elsie's blog and let me say you've done a wonderful job raising a very talented, giving, never tiring girl and I'd be proud if my Christina turned out to have half the good vibes Elsie has-what a fantastic, creative influence you must have/are been!
On another note, I love your paintings and how special you are able to paint every day! I really love the purple ones-thank you for sharing and I can't wait to see your next creation!
