There will be a few more of these florals. I am having fun with them. This is showing much warmer here than it is in person. Silly to say, considering the colors I used.

The table is a mix of Yellow Ochre and Quin Gold. But the gold is dominating. I thought about adding some leaves. I added the stems and decided it would be too busy. Day 17 is done.

Everybody born comes from the Creator
trailing wisps of glory.
We come from the Creator with creativity.
I think that each one of us is born with creativity.

We’re here! The halfway point. I have to say, I’m feeling very accomplished. After months of not painting. I now have a nice little collection. A collection I am happy with.

Out of the fifteen, there are only two that I wanted to make changes to. And I did. Day 3 and day 6. In challenges past, I would have felt I had more”bad” paintings at this point. I have noticed that I am stressing less over the outcome.

This next week is when it usually gets difficult for me. I am interested to see if that will be true again. Or if the last half will pass as quickly as the first.
