Today, I made another background with lots of texture. After the last painting, I was actually nervous before starting this one. Especially because I don't plan it out ahead of time. What if nothing else comes to me? So, after procrastinating all day yesterday, today I sat down and very quickly selected these colors (love them!!) and layered this background.
And wouldn't you know it, my fears were unfounded. As soon as I felt done with it, I held it at arms length and immediately saw the beautiful woman hiding in the layers. Today I'll gaze at her a little longer so that she can start "becoming" in my mind, and tomorrow I'll start painting her.
Now a quick glimpse at some of our hydrangea flowers as they are entering my favorite phase. When they first open, the flowers are brightly colored - blue, purple and pink. But after a while the colors fade and take on this antique hue, which I just love!
Thank you all for your wonderful comments on my last painting! You make my heart sing!
Hope you are all having a great day!
