Watercolor on Paper
I found an image of a "red flower" and used it as a reference for this piece. I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out. I like the painterly background, which really shows off the natural appearance of watercolors. However, I have no clue what kind of flower this is. A friend of mine thought it may be an azalea, and I see the resemblance, but really don't have a clue. Do any of you know?
I can't write this post without acknowledging today's holiday - Thanksgiving! I'm thankful for a lot of things (family, friends, a job I love, a beautiful home, etc, etc.) but this year I have one more thing to add to the list - I am so thankful to have found a rekindled passion...painting! I have found this year so rewarding. I reconnected with art, started this blog, opened up an Etsy store, and to my surprise, I've even sold several paintings. What a wonderful year...so much to be thankful for!
