Thumbs up

Very fine! You've brought the flowers into their place as the main subject, yet they still have the light airy look that can be so hard to capture when painting flowers.

Patrick,
Your suggestions will always be welcome. Thanks. Sometimes when you paint, it is easy to loose track of the essentials and just need to be reminded.

I hear you there. The still life is a great way to keep in touch with those essentials, the quick sketch is another. I try to do at least one 5 to 20 minute sketch every day to keep my mind to the task. Even if I only get to 1 painting a month (sculpture and teaching is my bread and butter) what I learn and connect with when I do my time sketching keeps me always ready to make a statement, Like my mentor Joe Abbresscia always says " study before statement". It's sort of a mantra to me but it keeps me on track.

Patrick,
I seem to find myself painting or doodling everyday. Since I have to work during the day, evenings and weekends are the times for me to jump in with both feet.

Last Saturday I started a landscape outdoors (in the heat and bugs). It is almost done but just have to think a bit more about the final image. Details Details Details

I'd love to see it when it's done. I try to do most of my sketches out of doors. We have such a short "summer" here that I like to take advantage of the hot weather (it maxes at about 90 here).

Perhaps after it is finished, I'll post it under the landscape section.

I looked at you web site, quite impressive. Sculpture seems so difficult to me. I guess I am just a flat person. Ha Ha Love you paintings also.

You should have some of our weather - hot, humid, & dry.
