Week 20 - Holiday weekend

  Take Flight - Sumi-e

This weekend was different from other three day weekends, we normally have travel somewhere fun.  This weekend we were not in a position to travel, and so we spent our weekend cleaning, I managed to find time to paint as well.  It was a relaxing time, and I feel very accomplished in all the projects I was able to finalize. These are the three I completed, there are about 4 more that are almost finished, which is very exciting for me.

Have a great week, keep making the world around you beautiful!

Week 19 - Devoted Love

This week I completed a pretty pink plumeria flower.  This flower is mostly recognized in the white flower, with the yellow inside but there are many different colors of blooms.  I've been wanting to do another plumeria, and yet I want not ready to do another single white bloom, but this flower captured my attention.  There are various meanings all over the world, but devotion and love are two of the flowers meanings.
Have a great week creating beauty in the world around you.

Lucky Bamboo given in threes is an expression of Happiness, and thus the name.  Three stalks equal happiness in this piece, it also works well for composition in general.  I would like to do more bamboo and practice the dry brush technique on the stalks, this is trickier to do with the smaller brushes.

Week 18 - Farewell Beauty

This week's flower is late in that it was to have put up for Mother's Day.  This one is for my mom, Gerbera Daisy's were her favorite.  This one was my first attempt, and I'm sure it will not be my last.  There are many meanings to daisy's and farewell and beauty are two of them, I have combined them here in the title to honor my mother.
I will be working to get the color more accurate before posting to my website for sale, it's really a bit darker pink than this picture shows.

This week I have been busy getting ready for my sister and her families arrival. So, I went back and tried my hand at the sunflowers again.
Have a great week, and keep on creating!
