For a while I did too many florals and I got tired of them. So I took a break and haven't painted them in a while. But lately I felt like I could go back to them. So these two are the result of that revisiting.
Florals are a nice way to play around with swooshing color about and changing shapes but still in a recognizable over all shape. If that makes any sense. Anyway, I still have some more canvases on hand so I might do a few more.
I'm so happy fall is here. Even though the days are still pretty warm the nights cool off, and I do appreciate that. I just wasn't made for hot weather. Some people struggle with depression in the winter, but for me it's summer. I hate being hot. It feels like there is no escaping it and I can't breathe like I can when the air is cool and crisp. Allergies make me tired and I take naps everyday and it feels like I can't get anything done-at a time of year when I ought to be getting lots done! I didn't get any apple sauce frozen this year and that makes me feel guilty. :( All those apples just falling off my tree and it feels like such a waste. At least Fiona got a few pies made out of them and the kids ate apples all the time while they were good.
But now the neighbor kids are back in school, the air is getting crisp and I'm looking forward to crock pot meals, walks in the rain and sweater weather. And, of course, painting!
