Smell the Flowers (2015)

As I was painting the lines started revealing the image of a face on the far right of the piece and I loved the strong, classical appearance of the face and I decided to paint a flower close by so it looked like this person was enjoying its beautiful aroma.  Once again, no agenda and what emerged surprised and delighted me!

Petal (2015)

A nature inspired piece.  I used watercolor pencils and q-tips to spread the paint.  I am so pleased with the result.  The painting conveys a softness I would expect from pastels not watercolor.  The q-tips smooth out the paint and simultaneously blend the lines of paint so some really cool things happen.  Gosh, I love just trying things for fun and getting a surprising result.  Nothing beats painting and the watercolor medium.  Very much hope you enjoy and always hope viewers of my work are sparked with new inspiration for their own work or to believe they can paint as well even if they’ve never once picked up a brush or a q-tip, lol!

Yellow is a happy color and daisies evoke happiness too.  This painting just makes me feel good.

My parents’ garden at home where I grew up.  Lovely Zinnia’s and 4 o’clocks.
