acrylic, 4" x 4"
Today was a day of too many subjects and not enough panels... I finally settled in on these small white flowers, and only having small 4" x 4" panels ready, I decided to just narrow my focus to one small flower. Again, I have no idea what type of flower this is, it is just something I found in the yard, that I thought was pretty. I had to laugh when I read Lisa Daria's post today about how she was playing "is it a weed or is it a plant" in her yard because I'm never sure either! I am sure that I want to try and do a larger version of these flowers wih the jar...
and I am liking how this one looks with the others in the series...

acrylic, 8" x 8"
I've started this recent series of paintings with the theme of "clippings", or "cuttings", just random sprigs and leaves and such that I come across in my usual daily routine. Nothing special or exotic, just everyday plants. I find it easier to figure out to what to paint if I stick to a theme.
Yesterday I received a package in the mail from fellow artist Sowmya Gade, over at her blog Copper Ground. She has a wonderful sense of color and and her work has such a nice painterly quality about it. She had a give-a-way last month and I won! Here is my prize...
It is a magnet of her painting of a Golden Retriever. So cute! Reminds me of my doggie!
