Four Years…


I can’t believe it’s been four years since we said good-bye to Mom.  Steve brought home this beautiful bouquet for the remembering.  After a light sketch of the vase, I tried just painting the flowers by looking at them and painting with one go-through.  In other words, when I painted the sunflowers I loaded on the yellow paint, painted what I saw, and then wouldn’t allow myself to go back over them or add details.  It was a good exercise, as the temptation is always to keep “messing with it.”  Actually, I think what I like best is the “splotch” of color by the quote.  I just loaded on some of the colors from the bouquet and “let them do their thing.”  Or,  I guess what I REALLY like best is the quote.  It’s SO Mom.  Miss you Mom.
