A few weeks ago I wrote about the stillness and joy of mixing colors for a coneflower painting.
Now that the painting is finished and photographed (and in my shop), I thought I'd share it here.
This was one of the slowest paintings I've done for a long time. So many things going on. So many distractions.
During this strange, difficult year I've lost my rhythm. It's taking me a long time to re-design my schedule, my routines, to create balance and flow. I haven't gotten there yet.
Things might have been discombobulated, but having this painting on the table in my studio brought me joy. It was a joy to work on. The colors. The movement of the paint. The details added bit by bit.
My flower models had to be replaced three times during the duration of this painting.
But eventually it was finished.
And scanned. And signed.
Some things take time.
One thing painting has taught me is patience.
Wishing you plenty of both. Have a lovely weekend.
p.s. I also managed to create some prints of this one, too. They're available in my Etsy shop.
