Then All At Once....
“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.” John Green
As I began this painting, I slowly began to fall in love with painting flowers.
Flowers were part of my painting life until the horses took over at the galleries and everyone wanted those and the wolves. Painting this for my dear friend became a blessing and the love of flowers 'blossomed' into my hands and heart.
This will be a short progressive journey as the blooms grow on the canvas. As of this entry... I am still working on the painting so it is not complete. It is in a drying stage right now so I can layer some transparent glazing of oils on top of the vase.
