Sweet Treasures

Flowers from the garden are such sweet treasures. These roses from my flower garden and the little white vase that my daughter gave to me became the subject of my next painting….

Southwest Sunflowers

This is the first painting I’ve done since the 30 in 30 Challenge… Those beautiful sunflowers are still at the Farmer’s Market and of course, I had to buy some… Then I stopped at Hobby Lobby to pick up some canvases and saw this round glass vase for half price and just knew I had to try another sunflower painting…

One thing I have realized about painting one painting a day and posting it, is that it doesn’t leave time toΒ  be picky about what you’ve painted. I honestly don’t know what to think about this painting. I was trying to do something new…

So, here it is…something new… πŸ™‚

Day 25 ~ Prolific Pansies

This painting has been sitting in my unfinished stash for at least 9 months. What is it about these unfinished paintings that is so hard to complete?

Day 22 ~ Sunflowers in Green Glass

I wasn’t planning to do another sunflower painting this year, but my daughter left for a trip this morning and left me with a bouquet of sunflowers in a green glass vase… the vase is what caught my attention. Definitely was a challenge as I have been working on this all day and I still don’t know what to think about it. Any suggestions???

I added the leaf because the space looked to empty. One thing I like about the leaf is that I did not intentionally set out to make it look folded over. I just noticed it now when I posted it. πŸ™‚
