I just want it known for the record, I finished this painting at 11:47 pm. So it was finished technically on the 225th day of my 365 Creativity challenge, but the blogging part will take me a little more time…
OK. This is vase 3 from my windowsill series. I chose yellow coreopsis or tick seed as I have heard it called. It’s one of my favorite garden flowers because it attracts gold finches to my yard.
I absolutely adore the top half of this painting. I love the way the flowers came out, but the vase believe it or not, is even a little to crazy for me. Don’t get me wrong, it’s that crazy in real life, but I look at the red flower before the yellow flowers which isn’t necessarily a great thing. Maybe I’ll go over it with more watercolor and darken it a little bit.
So let’s line them up:
They are 9×12 watercolors which I find fun, because they are probably only 2×3 inches in real life, which makes these paintings blow-ups of their images.
I have another busy day with the kids tomorrow – BACK TO SCHOOL SHOPPING! You know, the day you get to pick out your new book bag, lunchbox and Trapper Keeper <— wait, that just probably dated me! But no matter what generation you are from, it’s always exciting to get new things and get ready to go back to school.
It’s time. I can feel it in the air!
