Morning Sunshine

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.

P.S.  "I saw the angel in marble and I carved until I set him free." (Michelangelo)

Gerber Daisies & Apple "Sunny Afternoon"

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!

I picked up these daisies from Safeway this weekend.  I painted them because I feel that they a very cheerful and during these days of transition from winter to spring you need that.  I had lots of fun, I painted a close-up one as well you can see it in my daily paint works gallery.
