Flower theme


I'm feeling so inspired today, I painted two paintings in record time! More 8 x 10" daily journal paintings, oil on canvas board. I will add the links to the auctions once they begin. One starts today and the other starts tomorrow evening.
Green is my favorite color, in case you were wondering 'why on earth would she paint a green flower?' Besides, these are abstract, not realistic flowers. I'm really enjoying these little paintings! I'm thinking about creating a new poster with all the small paintings collaged together.
Next week I have the commission to start on. My goal is to finish the portrait by the end of the month. I'm psyched that I get to do an oil portrait! I love doing pencil sketches, but they are not as challenging as they used to be.

Thanks Cynthia,
I just love green flowers! The only one I've ever seen in real life was a green orchid. Beautiful flower!
