6 1/2 " h x 7 1/2" w. Watercolor of a single daisy. I did not labor over this. Put the paint in the negative space and let the flower emerge. Simple. Like a beautiful daisy flower.

A different composition was used in this one. I am not too sure I like it so, I will continue to work at it. Also, the blue in the sky is so intense, I think toning that down might be good too.

Using green in the painting is influenced by Andrew Wyeth. I want to see how much I can change the feeling, the atmosphere by adjusting the colors I use. I think I am looking at a different time of day, although the same place. In Wyeth's work I love the still ness created with a simply palette. I guess I am trying to get there too.

Route 46 Barns
I know it has been a long time since I posted anything. I have been away at a painting workshop, grades were due, and then to New Jersey to see Rick's parents. On the way home, Rick stopped for me to take a bunch of pictures of a farm that I have loved since I was little. There was a new blanket of snow covering the ground. It was breathtaking.
This painting and the ones to follow are all from one picture actually. How inspired I have been and focused on seeing the same place in varied light and technique. A break from the figure work - focusing on the same issues - light, sense of place and atmosphere.
