So I went to Costco yesterday and I picked up some irises to piant. I normally set them up in my studio so I have a good steady light source and everything. That would be the easy thing for me to do... Instead I saw the morning light shinning through the kitchen window and I thought why not. So instead of bringing the flowers to the easel I brought the easel over to where I had the flowers. I set them there so they would open up, instead I ended up painting them where they looked best. I think that is one of the great things about art you get inspiration from all around you. It's rewarding everytime I push paint around I have fun.

I went to Costco with the kids this morning and there among the food poor flowers that had been obviously fed food coloring was a beautiful bundle of white Gebers Daisies. Thanks goodness or I would have had to make a trip to Trader Joe's. I painted them with the daylight sunshine coming in through the studio window. There were actual clouds in the sky so I had the excitment of changing shadows, and light and all that fun stuff. If I have got you interested enough go check it out on Facebook. ( I can upload from my phone) that's the secret. Hope you like it!
