VIRGINIA BLUEBELLS - GETTING CLOSE



Just about finished - some blue on the bells (with some pinks and violets).  And then some shaping of things to finish it.

(It's odd how the camera picks up whites and makes the bg darker (before I put color in the bells) and now the bg it looks lighter in the photo.  It hasn't changed a bit and is darker - just Daniel Smith shadow violet.




The Kennedy Heights Art Center (Cincinnati) is having a juried show coming up - entry deadline is May 19 (online).  I think I may try to get one or two paintings into that (you can enter three).  I haven't done much of anything since the GCWS member show last summer.  I have been painting but no one but my blog buddies gets to see anything I do unless I get it in a show in the area.

Hi Rhonda, thanks for your visit to my blog. I still try to get on there every once in a while.
I'm loving these little flowers, so pretty and delicate. And as for that show well I say
You Go Girl. !

You really do seem to have a knack for these close up focused views of flowers. The contrast between the harder edges with soft delicate colour washes are magic.

You should definately put your work in for the show, I think this one is a strong contender!

Thanks so much, Elizabeth, Jennifer Rose, Barbra Joan and Lisa :). I appreciate your comments - but for some reason that painting is just sitting there unfinished - with just a bit to do! Oh, well, it will get done. I chose 3 finished paintings for the show and will let you all know if I get in - should hear June 1st. I think I may just take time off until then and refresh a bit.
