(7.5x11)
Another shot at the daffodils; I'm beginning to feel a little dogged in my pursuit of a bright, pure, pleasing yellow--it continues to elude me.
It may be time to move to orchids for a while ...
For a change of pace I took one of New Mexico photos and made the small (5x5.5), quick, wet picture below. When I selected this particular photo, I must have been subconsciously thinking of Suzanne's recent and ongoing and lovely series of paintings featuring roads (www.suzannemcdermott.blogspot.com); it's fascinating to see, in her series, how the road evolves, or unwinds ...



May also try a self-portrait, inspired by Suzanne. I've did two about three years ago: the one in my "profile" and another, in which I look rather glum and sulky.

Wow! A vibrant path! I like it. And thanks for the link. Regarding the colors of the daffodils, I'm going to post about my favorite watercolor brand next week on my great day.

PS Regarding glum self-portraits, see Don Gray's self portrait post on his 60th (Feb 15 & 16) at http://www.dailyartwest.com/

I look forward to reading about your fave colors. Yellow is often a problem for me; I have several yellows that I like--aureolin, indain--I just don't handle them well!
