Warning... painting flowers can be dangerous to your health!
Today, while painting the middle of the flower I tipped almost black water right over my beautiful sunny yellow painted sunflower petals. How, I hear you ask? Well, I was painting the dark middle of the sunflower, sneezed and knocked the dirty water over. I know my paintings are realistic but I think I might have taken it too far this time. I seem to have created the look and feel of the pollen so much so that it made me sneeze... Oh well, I guess I will have to paint those petals all over again on a fresh piece of paper.
I have had some productive parts of the day too. My two paintings 'Meh' and 'Identity' are now framed and ready to be shipped. I've taken two quick photos of them in their frames this evening for you to see.
Identity is in a black metal frame. I don't usually like dark frames but for this one it just seemed to work.
and Meh is in a silver frame. I love the way Alex's eyes seem to follow you around the room as he stares at you. Its doesnt matter where you are... he is watching (grin)
I get to enjoy both on my wall for a week or so. 'Meh' needs to be shipped to California in a weeks time and 'Identity' to Pennsylvania early September.
