Still Painting...

A friend asked me yesterday if I had taken the week off from painting, as she hadn't seen any blog posts. Bless her, she looks for them! I haven't taken time off from painting, but it hasn't been a week of post-able paintings. I did this little ACEO-size mum last weekend, playing with the new Arches oil paper and a package of colored scrapbooking paper that I recently bought. It was fun setting up glass on the paper and playing with the lighting. I'm happy with this one. The Arches paper is fun to use, but pretty thirsty. I had to use quite a bit of medium to get a good flow. 

On Tuesday, I painted a 6x12" panel of sunflowers. Wednesday morning, I wiped it off. Some paintings just aren't meant to be, and this was one of them. Liz asked me to post the wiped panel, so here it is.

It's about to get a couple of coats of gesso, on its way to a happier place. This is a Dick Blick "Artists' Board" – not sure I like the surface.

There was more painting, some travel and a family celebration, but that post will wait until tomorrow.


  1. This is a beautiful painting! I love the color and how soft the mum looks in the simple clear glass. Well done!

    1. Thank you Tammie! I'm wishing I'd painted it larger, as I like the way it turned out. Thanks for looking and commenting!
