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.
