Painted with my friend Mike last week--we were both rusty, our paints dry. I wanted to do a simple
setup: a twig in a glass. Mike added the proverbial monkey wrench: the clippers ... which were a great addition, and something I'd never have thought of.
Another good reason to paint with a friend!

My good friends bought a house in Fla., and they have big expanses of wall to fill.
So, I am going to try to do a big painting for them; I thought some tropical-foliage-type theme would be appropriate and maybe easier for me to paint, if I could break it down into smaller shapes ...
This is my first try, first wash.
Kind of a mess, eh? So many times I was going to stop, but then I decided to keep going and see, once the painting dried, if maybe I could "fix" it with a second pass.
Either way, it's, I hope, a learning experience.
The second drawing I have is of canna lilies.

After awhile I stopped trying! And, in truth, I haven't painted much in the last couple of months.
But spring is here and the daffodils are about bloom, which means painting!
