While we were in Arizona this winter, i had no wheels, and so i was left to my own devices. There was little to paint right at the condo and i didn’t want to hike with all my painting things to plein air paint, so i bought a bouquet of stargazer lilies at the grocery store, and a glass swan. This painting really gave me fits. I had already started the painting before i realized that i didn’t like the head of the swan in the midst of the lily. Not enough separation. It was quite challenging getting the smooth transitions to form the petals. In the end, i had to rework this several times.

I have to apologize for my absence. I have a new computer and have had a horrible time getting it to let me into my wordpress blog. After several hour on the phone with tech support, over the last two months, i am FINALLY able to get into the dashboard and make a post! It would not have taken the normal person that long, but when it comes to technology….I’m slow!
So…now…where was i…I think the last painting i shared was a little lamb, and i was really thinking spring….well THAT didn’t happen, did it? lol So i guess its back to colder weather. I had a photo of my MIL’s house that i had wanted to paint for some time. i loved the misty foggy look and the cows that walk by under the lip of the hill.
