I am so pleased to announce that my watercolor painting "Still Life with White Lilies", 20" x 28" has been accepted into the 54th annual Watercolor USA Exhibition. I feel so blessed and so excited to be included in this prestigious show! A special thank you to the Juror, Patricia Watts. The show runs from June 6 through August 23, 2015 at the Springfield Museum of Art in Springfield, Missouri.
It's March, so it's time for my annual Spring Flower Week. That means I'm getting back to my roots a bit and painting a "painting a day" for 7-10 days. It's a nice break to concentrate on flowers and the beauty of what's to come in my garden. Starting off with one of my favorite types of Roses, the Cabbage Rose. These are often portrayed paintings from the Victorian era. Love them!
video is dealing with reflections on a glass vase, how to achieve them
and how to paint them. It's these important details of a still life
that make them really special and draw the viewer in to study your
paintings closer. It's a lot of work doing these little paintings
within a painting...but well worth it.
Continuing with our theme to think about warmer weather...instead of the 19 degrees we have right now...some tropical berries. An explosion of color with great purples and greens. This includes a wet-in-wet background that was very fun to paint. Hope this brings warm thoughts to everyone. It's been a long winter...ugh!
