So I went to the store and bought sunflowers to put in vases around the house with hopes of painting. I must tell you I do this often with complete optimism and watch the flowers die and the water turn smelly and murky and no painting to be seen. This time I just made myself do it and I loved it. I can pull off a sunflower and 4 to boot.
It is all shapes. How many times have I said that and suppressed it like an evil thought. I didn't try to paint every petal and well it hangs together and like I said it is shapes, shapes of color butting up to one another. Anyway I am happy. Nothing like working from life.
