Red ones...

I am back in the studio and I have a couple of new paintings to show you. This one is a 10 x 10. I will show you the other 12 x 12 tomorrow because I might need to do something else to it. The good thing about acrylic is that if one layer is completely dry and you add another layer and if you don't like it you can just wipe it off with a Wet One. Boy do I ever go through the Wet Ones! (get the pop up at Publix-plain no antibacterial)

I hope you all don't get tired of all these flowers. I am going to paint them until I am tired of them but I'm not tired of them yet. That is unusual for me because usually I paint something and just move on. But I am trying to teach myself to loosen up and I know that to be a "painter" I need to have miles and miles of canvases behind me. With every painting I learn something new, especially about myself. Sometimes I feel like I got it and other times I don't. It's all part of this exciting art journey. The agony and the ecstasy!  No pain no gain.:))

It's great that you're blogging about your process--you can see how much you're progressing--love the depth and texture.
P.S. I saw that you're in Jane Davenport's class with me. I had to do this one--it's right up my alley!
