Street scene and Peony


It's been a while since I've posted. I've been preoccupied with painting my deck - not as much fun as art, but necessary. Now I hope to get back to the fun painting. Our class has recently focused on painting street scenes; since this is not a topic I normally paint, I had to make some photos. This one is from downtown Canton, Ga. It looks crooked in the post, but that's a result of the photography, not the painting! This one was a real learning experience.

The white peony bloomed in my yard this Spring and was beautiful; I made dozens of photographs and will try painting another using a different technique or a different support. Holly visited today; she finished several paintings, while I just finished this one!

Came across your blog -- wonderful work that you've posted. I especially enjoy looking at the one of bluebirds.

Thanks, Meryl. You can guess that I love bluebirds. They're raising their second family now in my yard.

Well, thank you "Sweet Lady"! I've missed painting and will try to do better now that the deck is finished. Thanks for not giving up on me.

Thanks, Karen. Holly and I painted one day, and I haven't done a thing since. Wish I were as disciplined as you! Perhaps tomorrow....
