I must confess, I do get a bit beside myself when it comes to flowers. I came upon FRESH CUT LILACS at the farmers market and basically "had a moment" where I lost contact with the real world around me......If you share my love for the scent of lilacs, then you know exactly what I am talking about. Of course, this was a "business" expense and I had to endure the smell while painting them and for several days afterward. The life of an artist can be tough, but I continue to soldier on. The strawberries were also found there and of course I couldn't just buy 3 of them, so I had to eat the remainder of a pint. All of this took place while visiting my daughter in LA. It was a wonderful trip, filled with lots of great food, sunshine and most of all , beautiful people. Later this week I will be posting a few pics from my time there.
And I have a request---please help me to grow my website and blog by forwarding this page to fellow art lovers! Thanks! Pin It

The pansy saga continues.....! Painting the same subject back to back allows one to build on what was learned from the day before. Hopefully. That is what always brings you back to painting. The hope of understanding more than you did on the previous painting day. What keeps me in love with painting is this---there is always, always more to learn. I have always felt that if one actually did know it all, then one would potentially become bored and be forced to get another job...... Pin It

So here we are---off and painting. My box of 8 x 8 Raymar panels arrived yesterday and after a coat of gesso, they were ready to go. I wish you could smell the strawberries--the heat from the spotlight on them kept my studio smelling delicious all day.
