Now that I have finished painting the roses, I have to decide on the next painting. I have a series in mind to create for another show… am pretty anxious to get going with it, but alas, have to wait it out until after my fall show.
I took the opportunity to sketch out a number of pieces Monday evening. Really rough sketches to see where my heart is at. I am also anxious to paint some more birds – but they too will have to wait.
One of the sketches is of a vase of old fashioned pink peonies sitting on our concrete bench. Another photo has some dropped petals at its base. Hmmm... merging the two in a sketch would be quite complex and quite inspiring as well.
Drew out my potted begonias on a 22 x 30 sheet of Ampersand Aquabord as well – complete with a Herculean spider! And also drew out two sketches of our doggie Sadie. She is soooo expressive. Makes me smile.
This may come down to a toss of a coin – where I start painting.
And in the fall, I will paint anything but flowers for about six months I am sure!
