Peonies



Well it's the last day before school gets out for summer!  Oh boy,  I'm so glad.  No more rushing out early in the morning
I'll be glad to spend time painting, and playing with my kids for a change.  So here are some peonies I found at TraderJoe's what a welcome site that was to me!  They used to grow in my garden not here in AZ though.  So I paint them and they always remind my of my old garden in Canada.   Flowers are apart of our memories I feel everyone could tell me a story like mine.  Hope you have a great weekend!

Daffodils on Phthalo Background

This painting started with a Phthalo Tourquoise wash.  It was a bit of an experiment but I liked how it works with the warmer insides of the daffodils.  It was fun and ill try it with other colors soon.

P.S.

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

Sunflowers & Oranges

Today I wasn't feeling so great, but I had bought these sunflowers and I finally had to get up and paint them.  I love painting sunflowers so much oranges on the other hand I haven't practiced as much.
It's good to try new subjects to stretch yourself.  Painting still life helps you learn to see color. 
Just keep painting.. Embrace the Journey!
Hope you have a great Mother's Day!
