When ART Goes Right




I like an odd quality to my paintings and a little realism thrown in. I always hope that to others it doesn't look like I know what I am doing half of the time. I like this mix, I don't always achieve the look. This was a canvas that had rock star writing all over it, factory done I gessoed it, the surface was great to work on.
14X18.

Also I have these Zinnias in the garden, the are called Queen Red Lime and I love them, the colors are sort of dusty. I put them behind the painting for cards and for a journal page. This is collage as well as painting. Some of what you see in background are the pages from a book on how to do rose malling. Such nice text in this book.
