#76/365 Paintings

Amongst my favorite flowers are poppies, gladiolas, lilac, gardenia, star lilies (the ones that smell good) But at the very tip top of my list is the sunflower. It is so tall and powerful—bold and beautiful. And gosh so productive. So much going on right at the center. In constant baby making mode; seeds, seeds, seeds. My rabbit has a dose of sun butter everyday to keep his aging skin moisturized. Such the prima donna. He loves it though. So today’s painting is to say “Hey sunflower, thank you! And, I love you. And so does my rabbit, Dakota.”

#75/365 Paintings

A new lil’ series coming your way. Think romantic, decorative, faux finish style and for me some challenging taming of color, wild and crazy. Whew, long sentence there. Learning some new techniques in my mixed media class. I doubt I’ll be able to tame the color palette, but a more folksie style for sure. Simple subject matter, complex technique. In screenwriters terms… simple plot, complex characters. This might be a short series. Not sure yet. Enjoy!
