This is Day two of a floral series I am working on during my Creative 365.
I have my kids home with me for the summer. They are still at the age where they actually want their mom with them (so I will be there until I’m no longer wanted!) This makes art/creative time a bit limited. I have about 3 hours to create something before my entire household falls apart!
Thus I picked a sweet and simple subject matter to carry me through this week. I am painting the bud vases I created in pottery, filled with different flowers from my garden.
Similar to yesterday, this 9×12 watercolor has about 40 minutes to an hour of work still needed. I need to create leaf shadows, more vase shadows and give a bit more depth to the hydrangea flower petals.
So now I have two paintings that need a little finishing. I have to decide if I want to do that tomorrow, or do a whole bunch of finishing at the end of the week (when there are more I probably haven’t finished!). It seems I am just shy of the time that is needed for these little puppies.
Knowing me, I will start on a new one. New beginnings are always more fun than tying up loose ends! Which reminds me my electricity is going to get shut off if I don’t get around to paying those bills…Uggh. There’s just not enough time in a day!
Ah, no worries, somehow I will get it all done. I stopped worrying about stuff like that, so one-hundred-and-fifty days ago!
