Up and Running in Minnesota

I'm finally settled enough in our summer digs to paint and read and write blogs. Yay! I worked from a photo that I took of a tiny bouquet that was on an outdoor table. I loved the shape of the cast shadow of all the little leaves and flowers that were in with a single iris in a tiny pitcher. I was hoping that I could get it done in 20 minutes so that I could put it on Twenty Minute Challenge blog, but it took me 50 minutes to get all the shadows and ruffles done to my satisfaction. It surely is good to be painting again, I feel like I've been without a brush for too long. I did manage to paint one landscape while at a friend's house on our trip up north but that was it. Now if I can just keep it going, does it help to set a goal? I'll try at least four paintings/blogs a week.


  1. Beautiful! 50 minutes is still a very short time for such a lovely composition. Looking forward to seeing more.

  2. Wonderful painting. Love all the shadows and softness about it. I hope to join you in painting again as its been a while for me too. .. I'm not sure about goals , maybe they work for others, but me ? I just go with the feeling.

  3. I love the gentleness of this one! Gorgeous and relaxing to the eye.

  4. Very soothing blend of colors, it is a nice one!
