Simple Pleasures

I bought a set of  three ceramic ducks from a charity shop . Combining them with the jar of daisies speaks to me of simple and pure pleasure. Working with mainly white and greys was not as hard as I imagined.

Red Rose

The wedding I arranged the flowers for is over and I got all my vases back and surprisingly some of the flowers too.Most of the time the guests pick the flowers out of the vases and I get empty vases.
My house smells like a flower shop at the moment...I am blessed.   :  )

Mum and Plum

Its funny how you can paint any subject over and over again and yet still end up getting stuck.I had to scrape this one twice before I was satisfied with the result. Its something I very rarely did,I feel that is progress to admit to a mistake and persist with it and keep trying.

I listen Marvin Gaye alot and in particular this song.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1uelY2SGmw

Spring Ducklings

Last night I decided to try more often to take each image and explore it in different mediums.It actually felt liberating and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Light

How light bounces of different surfaces is actually what painting is all about. Trying to capture the light is elusive but oh so fascinating.
I haven't been painting much these last few weeks,I think the long winter was dampening my spirits.I know that is really not an excuse.A dear friend and artist has said to me to keep my brushes wet and I think ultimately that practice of painting everyday is the best teacher so any time away from painting I regret very much unless its absolutely necessary. So I resolve to paint and post more regularly. I hope and wish that all my fellow artists out there also find joy in their art and find more time to paint.

Whisper of Pink

The sun has been shining,the blossoms are finally coming out of hiding.Spring is here at last and it feels like the world is waking up from a long,cold sleep. A friend says its bad luck to pick blossoms from a tree and the trouble with hearing something like that is even if you try not to believe in it

 there is always that doubt in your mind.So I will wait until I see some blossoms that have fallen off and paint them or take some photos.
