Yesterday was busy!
Geranium 1, Oil on canvas
I had hoped to post one of my new daily paintings, but alas... the paint is too wet to scan. Also, my time was extremely limited yesterday, so I didn't have time to do technological work on images at all. Some days are just like that... I hope today isn't! With school back underway, it is a much greater challenge to continue the daily painting routines! But, I do have several new ones to post here this week! And, I am finding it is a calming part of the frantic day to come home and pick up the paint brush and begin to stroke buttery paint across the surface!
This painting for today is a magnified and interior view of a geranium. It is an older painting and is part of a private collection. What captured my attention was the way the light played on the small petals and also the surprise of the very miniscule white interior... something I didn't guess was there!
