One of the best things about being an artist is that your art not only brings you joy, but brings joy to others. Today I painted some tulips I bought at Safeway. I put them in the sunlight and they opened up and looked so pretty. I called them "forever" because they make me think of something that lasts.
A feeling of beauty and joy.
P.S. "Beauty is the love that you devote to an object" Paul Serusier
I went to Crate and Barrel last week and bought some new things to paint. I like the way silver or any shiny thing looks when painted. I kind of went over the top in this painting with challenges. Next painting I will focus on one, not all of my new things to paint!
On another note, I am in the Northern Trust Bank in Scottsdale AZ, with Celebrating 30 yrs. Scottsdale Artists' School Exhibit. My painting made the show invite brochure that was mailed out!
So lots of exciting things are happening.
