Just Home from the Market, 14 x 18
I painted this one in class this morning. I actually steered immediately away from the tulips as I walked in; on Tuesday I'd painted a small group of tulips at home and wiped it off just as I finished--it wasn't clicking. Those who paint with me know I am terribly fearful of painting flowers--so no surprise to me that I nearly ran from them in class. Because Laurel challenged us to do something "unexpected" with the composition, I chose to confront that fear, and was rewarded with a result I'm really happy with. It may be the one I donate to the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center Art Auction. I can't think of a name for the life of me, so it remains--untitled.
One and Only, 6 x 6
I took a souvenir home from class and painted it this afternoon....
