One More Thing I've Never Done
Doing things I've never done is usually not high on my list
except in art.
I do that almost every day.
I've only been doing this for a few years, so there's lots of new things to be done.
Lots of ways to re-invent the wheel.
As I've said before, we grow lots of flowers.
My husband loves to bring in bunches of flowers for me to arrange,
and sometimes he does the arranging.
Right now we have some echinaceas, daisies and yarrow so that was my set up.
I have this pretty cool silver looking ceramic vase and I thought
well, that will be a new experience.
I've never painted silver or any kind of metal.
I admire my many art friends who regularly use it in their paintings,
but me, well I've read about it.
Does that count.
Here's what I was looking at when I paintedtoday.
The cloth looks blue in the photo, but it's really a sage green.
Don't you love the loose look of the flowers.
That's why I wanted to paint it.
I'm kinda tight when it comes to painting and I thought this might help me to loosen up.
I'd start out with the loosening up idea in my head and by the time I got it done,
they'd all be packed in there like sardines.
I got out an 8: x 10" panel and let her rip!
It's not quite as loose as I would have liked, but I ran out of racin room.
I had lots of fun with the silver.
Obviously, it's not really silver, but I had fun trying to pick up the reflections I saw in it.
Anyway, I'm not happy with it and I'm showing it to you,
so that says something.
Thanks for stopping by today.
