Day Seventeen

Catching a cold is a real motivation killer! But I forced myself into the studio and looked for inspiration and something small. Dreary days call for sunny flowers. The golds and oranges of the California poppy were just the ticket. This is a playful painting, done quickly without to much attention to detail is all I really have the energy for anyway. I slopped on paint, let it run and drip, allowing the watercolor to do its thing. How we paint is as important to the feel of a painting as is what we paint.

It won't be long before I have these cheery flowers blooming in the garden and I can paint them outdoors in the warm sun! Until then, we paint the memory from a photo!
