Perfect Pair

It's Kristen's Show and Sell time again. Every week she opens up her blog for anyone that wants to post things they create. Check out her blog if you have a chance.

This is a detail from one of my recent paintings. I go through stages of wanting to paint, trying, getting frustrated, retreating and gradually getting up the nerve and courage to try again...

This is the full version of Daylilies and Hydrangeas. The finished piece is 16"x 20" a on canvas board. I was intrigued by the combination of the bright, orange and yellow lilies that grow like weeds on the side of the road down here, and the beautiful pom pom blues and purples of the hydrangea bushes. They are both in full bloom here now.

  1. You do amazing work! I hope you will continue to join my party! Do you ever make anything with a butterfly? Just curious,I am really into butterflies. Kristen

  2. Thanks Kristen! I will definitely continue to post. I think it's a great idea! I have done butterflies in the past, some pendants. Next time I do one, I'll make sure and post on Thursday.
