Vibrant Red Roses in an almost finished watercolour
Such joy in this piece.
I started the day with a blog post on roses and thought it might be nice to share one last post to end my painting day too, with roses again.
I am absolutely having a fantastic time painting roses in my garden. But I have already spent so much time working on pink blooms and a particular red rose has been calling to me all week. This afternoon I couldn't resist any longer. So here is my latest rose painting.It is nearly complete and as it came to life the joy in each brushstroke was incredible. I am on a heavenly high, the kind that comes when the colours you have used have made you feel great.
I also feel very close to Blanche Odin, my heroine in the art world of painting flowers. I so hope she would have liked these. Her inspiration wieghs on my shoulders each time I start a new rose painting as I wish one day to paint them at least half as well as she did.
I am really excited because I have also recieved so many wonderful emails with invitations to fabulous art events and workshop destinations. On top of this, I have had really good news but unfortunately cannot share the details because for now its' a huge secret, sorry, but please watch this space.
I honestly believe if you do good in this world or make others happy then wonderful things come back to you. I must have made someone very happy today judging by the glow I am feeling from reading a particualy exciting email today!
Roll on tomorrow and happy painting!
