Gilberte...To the QUEEN of flowers I say, "thank you'! I am not sure what you mean by "quick green"? I will certainly add it if you say so.

Thanks, Mark! It was quick and loose. And she does KNOW flowers!

Thanks, Jim

Thanks, Scott! Me too. I really like the pot! I know that the flowers need some detail, but because this was made up I did not have anything to reference back to for the detail. Oh well, it was fun and may lead to new things. Jim

Helly Woodguy,
THANK YOU for the compliment. I didn't even know you knew of my painting existence. As you mentioned your work to be a "quickie one" I just suggested some "quick-vivid green" to be added ... :D I like your style very much and whenever possible I always take a look at your postings ... WC having so many forums I sometimes miss things.
Sincerely,

exciting whites and greens on a supportive matrix.
BTW
flowers are selling well now.
it is a great idea.
I might go for more of that.
possibly improptu paintings of people and portraits are too personal or private to purchase.

A very good nights work. I would be afraid to add to the greens and distract from the overall feel and eye attraction.

Congratulations. I haven't accomplished fast and loose!

Lots of your work as a milky softness that I like
This one especially, it as if one looks through a steamy shower door do make out the object on the other side.

Mysterious.

Whoohoo:clap: Awesome...would not add a thingto the flowers!
Would make the pot a bit wider beneath the rim on the right side.
It should sell before the paints dry.

Gilberte...I know your paintings well! I have always admired your ability in watercolor to paint such wonderful florals. I am an avid looker, but not so avid when it comes to comments and responses. Thanks, again


Thanks, Jerry! Good observation about what people want.

HSargent....Thanks, I am trying to let looser and less caught up in detail. For me it is not easy.

Thanks, Ginette! "Through the shower door" I like that description, and that is the kind of softness and mood I would like to be able to convey.

Susan...Thanks for the "clapper"! And I love you optimism about the quick sale. I put it on my web gallery at Yessy today, so we will see!

Thanks again to all, Jim

this is great work. as a work of art it holds together quite strong for me and I especially like the very soft use of paint on the canvas in areas; it almost has that soft chalk feel to it. Color mixing/selection is top notch. This is the magnum opus.

have fun,

Bocote
