Cosmos, what a cool name for a flower. They are actually in the sunflower family. (see my post from yesterday)
Having Spring fever, these were a treat to paint. Cosmos were the first flower I ever started from seed. I got them from a lovely neighbor back when I was going to college. They are so dainty looking yet very hardy. The great thing is they re-seed themselves and come back every year in abundance.
I miss having Cosmos, I will have to find a good spot for some this year.
So busy painting away in the studio. I will post pics soon but for now I am throwing in some paintings from a while back. This is from 7 years ago, wow! Talk about dusting off the archives. This couple was so cute.
Such a mild winter. We are already starting to see some green pop. Hopefully we wont have any hard freezes that could harm the buds. I think the brisk weather and the fact that I haven't painted outside in a while made this painting quite "brisk". Looking forward to getting out again soon, but not today with the 60mph winds.
This morning I was putting some dry paintings into storage. Of course I was supposed to be painting but I was feeling rusty and decided to stall. Besides my studio is a mess and I needed to make room so I could focus. Anyway, I came across this little guy that I did at the start of the new year but never posted. So, here it is. By the way I did actually start painting eventually. I will post those later this week.
Surprisingly I snuck in some studio time on Sunday afternoon. Then, I went outside and attempted to run off all those Christmas cookies I enjoyed among other comfort foods while hibernating the last few months. sigh.
Seems like yesterday I painted this. I have a couple new paintings that were meant for this post but my pictures didn't turn out. I will post them on Monday. For now here is a landscape I did from last November.
