Close up of a New Painting of Primroses
I love painting shadows so the fall of soft violet over one face of a flower is really pleasing to my eye.
Sometimes when everything is going so beautifully the unexpected will take you by surprise as it did to me this week. A hurried race to hospital in severe pain started my early morning on Monday and I was kept in for observation. After x-rays, and rest I was allowed to come home. I am really relieved to say the pain is now subsiding and on treament I feel fine again. I have had to take an unplanned break which has given me time to enjoy looking forward to my year and what is planned.
Sometimes not being able to paint is a good thing.We have more time in our minds to see what we want to achieve. I have a full year ahead with some really wonderful exhibitions which I plan to only show exciting work in. Which means I will be loving my time in the garden and nearby locations painting what I enjoy most, from life in amazingly different lights and with a feeling of movement in my brushstrokes capturing what I see in unique results.
In my imagination I see all the gorgeous Spring Flower paintings yet to be approached lightly and in stunning colours that scream the time of year.
On my positive, as always note, I am so lucky.
It was a good time to be taken ill as this is my quiet month mainly set aside for administration. It is a great time to recover well and a brilliant time to rest when the flora and fauna is yet to come into full bloom.
