Blue CHina Plate

Today I painted a blue plate with one of the roses from my garden.  The rose smelled so nice and my Boston Terrier smelled so bad. My sister was visiting and she read a pretty funny book to my model and I and I painted a portrait after the small painting that I am posting. The portrait was a larger painting and will require another sitting.  I will post it when it is finished.
Happy Painting !


Well, I have fixed the painting of the first daylily but have not photographed it yet.  My problem with it seemed to be that the background was not the right value.  Sometimes, artistic license does not work the way you want it to.  This is a painting that I did of my impatiens in a pot on the back porch.  Plein aire in the comfort of the porch !!!  I appreciate your thoughts.
