I painted over a landscape painting to get this one and there is only a speck or two that is left of the original painting. I wanted to create beautiful color. As one of my friends likes to say, “I just wanted to push paint around.”

Our outdoor painting group “Vistas & Vineyards” has started up again with our annual trip to Garland Nursery in Corvallis, Oregon. There is always so much to choose from to paint here, but I settled on some pots of flowers and a steel bike “planter.” The temperature was cool but it felt great to be outside to paint again.

I continue to make a liar out of myself by painting flowers. Three weeks ago I stated in public that I don’t paint florals or still life because I’m not a gardener or a collector of things.  I think that I paint landscapes or figures like crazy for a while and then need a visual break and a different kind of challenge.  This must be my break.

I started sketching these flowers and came up with a decent composition.  First I started painting big white blossoms but it never wowed me.  I kept painting from the sketch and photo the first day, but when I came back to it the next day I put those away and concentrated on what was happening on the canvas.   Next I plan on doing a large canvas full of flowers!

Another very playful painting … Just having fun!  Last February I wrote a newsletter about naming paintings, its difficulty, necessity and process.  This one just popped into my head as I sat down at the computer to save it.  It is nice when this happens.

I was off to paint with a friend last week and I left with a quite a few minutes to spare.  I was enjoying the beautiful morning, with no hurried pressure like I so often experience.  Looking for other painting opportunities I came  across these huge sunflowers.   I pulled to the side of the road to get a few quick photos.

I’m not a floral painter but I like them as well as anyone, especially in the spring when the blossoms and first flowers come out. What a promise of sunshine and fine weather to come!

I enjoy flowers but don’t garden so rarely have any material for a floral still life.    I took this photo many years ago and decided to revisit it and paint a floral for fun.   Happy Valentine’s Day.
