Start of another Water Lily painting.

Whenever I get stuck for inspiration on what to paint, I revert to flowers.  There is just something cheerful about painting them and than having pictures of them all around the house. The water lily above isn't finished yet but it's getting close...by tomorrow...maybe.

Since I started blogging I've been painting smaller so I can post something new more often.  I love it.  I'm painting much more then I did before but I think I'm going to have to start something bigger so I have a group of larger paintings ready for the shows I want to have a booth at.  It would take a huge number of my 5"x 7" paintings to fill a 10' x 10' booth.  Hmmm, if I paint one every three days that's thirty every ten weeks... It could work.  I wonder if anyone would buy little portraits of my family :-D.

  2. I also love water lillies as I am sure you know from my blogs it is the wonder of them in all their beauty yet their feel planted firmly in the mud. This is a lovely depiction of one lovely colours.

  3. The thing I really like about small paintings is the low commitment level. If I don't like it I simply move on to another. I like to experiment with my smaller paintings too.
