I'm thinking this is done. Probably. It was a joy to be painting flowers again, and I enjoyed making up a leafy but not accurate background. First time I ever painted a dewdrop, so that was fun. One of my favorite new colors is the gray I get from a wash of indigo, then a wash of any of a few different oranges. That's the lightest color you can see in the background. I've already started another daylily.
Just got my order from Cheap Joe's with a restock of Arches, as well as two more gatorboards for stretching my (half-sheet) paper. This way I can get as many as 8 sheets ready to go at a time. Part of preparation for Kanuga, now only six weeks away!
I hope all you southerners have survived the most recent snowstorm with power and heat intact. I heard that Asheville, the closest city to Kanuga, got 15 inches of snow. I had been hoping to see Spring when I got there. Oh well.
