2016 Glass Of Trimmings

Little Glass of Trimmings

I’m finally catching up and putting some new artwork on my site! For now just this little 6×6 painting called “Little Glass of Trimmings.”

Whenever I prune any flowering bushes, I can’t bring myself to throw out any of the sprigs that still have a few blooming flowers on them. They end up in little glasses on the bar top where I can see them while I cook or do the dishes. These cute little white flowers were asking to be painted for several days… thankfully they held on till I could get to them, squeezing a couple hours in late one afternoon. I had fun with the thick brushstrokes for the flowers, because they were so small I had to give them some body to stand out amongst all of their green leaves…

As always, the painting is for sale… only the ones marked with red dots are not available.

Remember opening up a new box of Crayola crayons…the kind with 64 crayons and a sharpener?
Ahhhh….the excitement, so many possibilities!
