I took some of my birthday flowers and imagined them in this field. I'm trying hard to cultivate a looser, more impressionistic style of painting and to get their I'm trying to use bigger brushes and not belabor the details. I see paintings by artists I admire and sometimes am so impressed with how much you can say with so little. I can see the vision of where I want my painting style to go, but it's harder to make my hand see that vision. But it's all in the journey!!! (or so I keep telling myself)
I know that age is just a number, but there is still something pretty daunting about turning 60. But, I'm actually feeling really good about where I am in my life. My family and friends all sent birthday wishes and my sister sent me some lovely flowers. It was such a nice surprise and wonderfully sweet gift. This morning, the day after my birthday, I woke up excited to get started on this small painting of those flowers.

I'm an fine art artist in Raleigh, North Carolina. I need a paintbrush in my hand to feel complete and I invite you to follow me on my art journey. Everyday brings new ideas and projects... there simply is not enough time... On December 1, 2012, I joined the community of artists who paint a painting each and every day. I haven't been able to keep up with the daily painting, but I'm trying hard to keep my paintbrushes busy.
