Sunday - A Day of Rest

But, is painting rest? People often say to me "Painting must be so relaxing!" Well, sometimes. But for me it can be anything but, especially if I have a commission and I'm concerned 100 times more about the outcome than if I were painting for myself. One thing I LOVE painting is flowers. A couple of weeks ago I asked all my friends to send me pictures of their bridal bouquets. I thought it would be a great idea to create an artistic memory of the bride's bouquet on her wedding day. So here is my first one. I hope to post more of these bouquet watercolors then create a new link on my website which bride's or friends of the bride can go to get information about having their own bouquet painted in watercolors. Of course, like all things in my life, this happens much slower now that I have a VERY full time job. So today, I rested a little, painted a little, rested some more and then finally posted on my blog. Let my know what you think.

Just found your blog.... I LOVE your use of color as you paint. I'm not a visual artist myself - I'm a musician - though I certainly enjoy seeing the beautiful things that others can create. I'm also a bride to be...

Are you going to consider taking custom orders for such things?

God Bless!

Hi Liz - Thanks for such a nice compliment. In fact, yes, I hope to set up an area on my website to take customer orders for the bride's bouquet. I just wanted to paint a few more examples. We'll see what happens... stay tuned. :)
