I believe all artists are Aspiring Artists. No matter how much we learn or how successful we are there is always more to master! It really is all about the journey. Join me as we travel this road together!

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.
