Do all artist’s feel the urge to paint flowers?  Seems like I’m always thinking “one day I should paint that blossom.”  Thanks to sweet bride Aimee, I have finally get to nurture that side of me, even if only for a bit.

I have a feeling there will be more to come….

Gardenia

I love Gardenias (though I have no interest in pinning one to the side of my head) I enjoy their sweet aroma.  Just after sunset I happened to capture this near perfect bloom in our backyard.  By morning, the heat had zapped it…grateful to have seen it in its moment of glory.

Happy Friday y’all!

 

remember that ink and bleach pattern ?  It’s been haunting my soul…

No bleach here…just acrylic, watercolor, and some manipulation in Photoshop.

Jim Croce sang about it…and I suppose you could call me a  memory hoarder.

Dried Gerber Daisies

Suggestions for dried Gerber daisies?  I’d be okay just salvaging one, but they’ve sat on my desk for nearly a year (362 days to be exact) with no real inspiration coming to mind.

…it’s what keeps me interested in pen & ink work.  After all, it’s the little things that make a house a home, right?
