I was reorganizing my studio storage closet and came upon a few paintings I had stashed away thinking they were worth revisiting someday. I really liked this one but I had never actually finished it. I painted it about a year ago when I had just an hour left in class and didn't want to overwork the painting I had just finished. So I grabbed some leftover flowers and quickly did a palette knife painting. I never thought much about it until I came upon it again this week. It looked to me like I just needed to establish the shadows and define the stems and leaves a little more. I have to try this again soon. I think the fact that I really didn't care about making a great painting helped me make a pretty good one! P.S. I just sold the painting "Clementines" that I posted here two weeks ago.
