The roses this year are beautiful! On Sunday I painted orange roses inspired by the lovelies I saw at UCLA. I’ll share my orange roses painting in an upcoming post. I’m not quite finished yet. Oh but let’s go over the above floral arrangement. Did I sketch this with a pencil first? No, it was Neocolor Water Soluble Pastels. I use pastels to do a rough sketch and then get right into painting. I used the last of my sun-kissed yellow to paint flowers. The orange, yellow and pink roses express the friendship, peace, and love I experience with nature. The scallop border flower pot is cute, fun, and carefree. I can’t believe all of my sun-kissed yellow is gone. I guess that means I’m ready to use the premium cadmium yellow! Yes, everything goes. As an artist, you have to explore your tools. See what happens. Keep going!
I’m the artist who signs her initials with a small heart. I like blue flowers. I want blue roses. I want to paint and let the flowers bloom before my eyes. I express how nature makes me feel. In the words of Tabitha Brown, “It’s my business.” This is how I’ve been painting and will continue to paint. Thank you for your support and kind words. I’ve been selling a few books and there’s more art to come. Oh right, I will officially go over my summer plans. I’m excited for what’s to come!
