So Much Inspiraton - So Little Time!
Outside my window where I sit at the computer I see a constant progression of flowers in bloom. I run outside with my camera or pick up my scissors (then I don't run :>) - and pick some to arrange. A flurry of picture taking activity (especially when sunlight is involved) and then I download to my computer to sort through them. Files and files of beautiful images to choose from.......and still there are only one or two that are candidates for paintings. Sometimes a composite is required to pick the best angle, colors and shading. Here's what I took this morning. The last of the daylillies of this color that are left so I really couldn't have waited, they'll be finished by the end of the day. I didn't even take the time to set up the fabric and surrounding objects as long as I have my main subject I can always shoot those items separately.....and yes that is my coffee pot the flowers are sitting in......
