Flowers In A Vase….

2015 August 19

Ugh I totally suck at creative project titles, lol!  Hey gang, I wanted to share another project which I created after watching Flora Bowley’s Life Book lesson.


It always amazes me how a painting comes together at the end.  I truly had a hard time with the background and the “letting go” process but I kept at it.  And you know what, totally love the end result.

Allowing the all too colorful background to show through in the flowers made it not so “loud”.  By letting go of all the other areas by covering it up, I really didn’t loose it all as it still comes through in bits and pieces.




And the hot pink frame?  Perfectly accents the spots of neon pink in the blooms.  Love this technique of lots of layers and mark making and then covering some of it up.  Be prepared, lots more projects like this.

As for me, I start my new job today.  Super excited but also a little nervous.  It’s doing something totally different from what I’ve done these last twenty-plus years.  Wish me luck!

Until next time……. xoxoxo

    I've been scrolling through your projects and loving them.  When I googled "art journals"  yours really stood out – and this is a style I really want to try.  I love your flowers and shapes.
