Flowers and Such

Burst of Color

Pouring down rain today so i spent the day visiting a few of my galleries and setting up some logistical stuff for the upcoming workshops in morehead city.
i always want to paint after doing all that marketing stuff so i knocked off this one while listening to saturday night TV.

most think that all i do all day is paint, but nothing could be further from the truth. you have to ride around marketing more than i'd like. oh well.. the price to pay to get to live off my art. its a small price i'd say. and i meet so many great folks when i'm out there riding around too!

wanted to de-emphasis the cup and so its edges are softer than the flower focal point with its harder edges, more saturated colors and the orange against all that blue.
