Just before Christmas, one of Bob Burridge's Bob blasts
(his weekly video art advice hit), told us how to paint
flowers without reference. He did them in about five
minutes. Mine took much, much longer.
This is one of two paintings I did with that technique.
I was going to put them in an art show before
Christmas, but thought better of it. Tonight I was
looking for reference to another image, and found
them, and thought, 'why not?'
The world right now (and maybe it always has
been) is an uptight place. In the spirit of startingf
a new year -- let's keep it loose just for today.
Thank you to everyone for your wonderful
words of inspiration and kindness to me
in 2015. Here's to an amazing 2016.
One of my friends on Face Book started
calling it sweet 16, and that made me fall in
love with the new year. Thanks Phyllis.
Happy New Year!
