I didn't know I was in a lavender mood when I started this painting last night. I am rather color blind when it ocmes to browns and purples. The more subtle shades are the ones that fool me.
The painting of the face and the buildings are mine, the tiny roses are from a garden photo, in the more complicated collage there is a photo of a stone tile.
I was thinking of the time, very enjoyable time, doing the paintings, taking the photos, scanning, fussing with the 2 collages, it amounts to around 5 hours. Of course all the time I am doing this I also have thoughts of the next thing to do, then there is the everyday stuff that gets thrown in and I wonder why time goes so fast. Oh I forgot the time I spend staring into space thinking, remembering, having gratitude that I am enjoying myself.
