I’m up! Thought it was the server. Instead it was city repairs that had the connection down. Hallelujah AMEN! That’s a big thanks to God. And to my computer guru Randy. He worked all night trying to get everything back online.
Thank You Randy!
I posted this earlier on Google+ and Facebook. It is a subtractive painting. The vase and large flowers are the first layer, a mix of red and blue. I let the paint mix on the canvas so it would be uneven. I carved out those shapes by adding a layer of white.
I added pattern to the table and vase, and more flowers. I used watercolor to add variation to some of the large buds, and to the leaves.
I almost didn’t to gift this. It didn’t turn out the way I was hoping. I know the reason, and what I can do to make the next one better. I looked at it for a couple of days, and decided that I really liked it in spite of knowing its “flaws”. My flaws as a painter.
It was for a good friend, she loves purple. She really loved it when she saw it. That’s all that matters!
