April Showers Bring May Flowers - FINALLY!

Well you can see I have "flowers on the brain" this latest entry into the "Year of Jewelry" group I joined earlier this year. Each forged segment has a word from this well known phrase embossed and patinated and linked with two groupings of tiny glass flowers. Made of sterling silver of course and a little SS bee dangling from the clasp. Now I'm going to go and paint some flowers..........

After this dismal week in the middle of April I've been dabbling with photographing more of what I hope to be seeing in the coming months.....lots and lots......of flowers. This is of a potted pink lilly that I gave my mom on Easter Sunday....and hopefully will use in a large scale painting. I haven't decided yet if it will be in acrylic or oil. I'm leaning more toward oil
for the subtle color shifts in this pale pink color scheme that will enhance the delicacy of the petals. Acrylics are great for
bright and bold but this needs a more delicate treatment.......In any case, I'm sharing a little bit of inspiration with anyone who
visits me here at my blog.
