I've been pulling up older floral paintings and still life paintings of mine from my files to use for a project entry. So I thought I'd post a couple here. The first two are from years ago. You probably can see the dates on them if you enlarge them by clicking on each one. The third painting below is probably on the Floral Painting page of this website. I didn't go back and check. Today I was thinking about my parents a lot, missing the ways that they were always supportive of me and their unconditional love while they were alive. I was having a low day, and seeking some reassurance. Remember how artists experience "Low" lows, and "High " highs? This was some of that!!! Although I am working on new directions for my art, which is a good undertaking for me, I sometimes get sidetracked by the "stuff "of real life. And today was like that. Spent some time with a wonderful close friend this afternoon, who helped me sort things out. No painting today... I even skipped my figure drawing drop-in session that I love because of the dulldrums (sp?). Tomorrow is another day. I hope to spend it cooking for Passover, so I can get ahead on that and freeze things. Also, it will just point my head in a different direction. The color yellow that I wrote this in is to give me a boost!
