More Petals

I finally had time to work on the painting today, now that Thanksgiving is over. I took this picture before I decided to change the shape on the first leaf. But, I feel I still need to work on the shape some more. Hopefully tomorrow will have better results. I also haven't decided how much of the pink in the background that I want to bring down to the bottom.
Any comments on what to do in the background be would great!!!

I have started a new painting in the series of dried flowers. I thought I would try to post some of the attempts at this one as I go along.
Not sure if I will always remember to take a picture of each painting session but I will give it a try. It seems as though watching my own progress though a series of photographs of the painting sometimes helps me see where I might be going wrong or what needs to be rethought.

Autumn Flowers


This was my next attempt in the Flower Series I have started. Again, I am trying to get some movement in the Petals. I am working from a variety of flowers I have dried over the summer. I really need some comments left on my blog, so please feel free to give me your thoughts on this recent direction of paintings!

Reaching for the Sun

Well, it has been a long time since I have posted any new work. I have recently felt the need to work larger and to start a series. Sometimes trying to decide which direction to go in painting can be an emotional one. This is my first attempt at a series of Flowers. I really enjoyed trying to capture the movement I saw in the petals.
