May has always been a time of blooming flowers which I love to smell, look at, give and receive BUT, until recently, NOT PAINT. I slowly, slowly began to add them to my hummingbird paintings because hummers go to flowers for the nectar. Then, because I love to teach and students really like painting flowers, I had to add flowers as main subjects; I just can’t turn down a student request.
Finally, I grew to love the joy all those beautiful flower colors brought to me. I think aging has made me enjoy colorful things! Who knew!?
I have been rewarded in all of my work because, thanks to painting flowers, I am a better colorist.
Come join me as I celebrate my last year in the “frantic fifties” and document my “Artful Passages” into my sixties and beyond. In my artful blog/journal I’ll use writing, painting, drawing, and photographs to chart my blog-journey.
Since its my birthday and all, I deserve some cake don’t you think? In lieu of the real thing, let’s serve up a couple watercolors instead. Lots less calories!
