New painting - pansies

It is another picture perfect day here in central NY. Big deal, you say? We have so few of these around here that it is a big deal.

For some reason I signed up for golf lessons. I learned that I am doing everything wrong and that it really is hard to teach an old dog new tricks! Once I tried swinging like I was told to I had muscles hurting that I didn't know I had.

Anyhoo, above is a new painting (OSWOA 4 X 6) It is a response to a photo challenge in the OSWOA group on Ebay. I chose this photo because I loved the colors and it reminded me of chintz. I call it 'Dusties Pansies' since it was her photo. BTW it is a watercolor on 140 lb. watercolor paper. I will be lising it shortly on ebay. My Ebay art link is on the left.

I have to run. I need to drop by the zoo on my way to golf to drop off a painting. This weekend is the annual 'Wine in the Wilderness' festival and they are having an art show for the first time.
Take Care.

What a great artist, could you paint Paul McCartney per chance?

Hi Harleyblues. I think I could do a portrait of Sir Paul. Email me at lmrspdr@dreamscpe.com if you are interested in a commissioned piece.

Great site, I'm new at this blog stuff too (only started it this weekend). My page is http://www.grahamettridge.blogspot.com

I'm kind of envious of you - I've tried many times to pick up a brush, pencil or pastel to express my feelings, but usually end up even more frustrated. You are so lucky to have such a gift and such patience.

However, after reading your blog, I will make extra effort to give it a go.

keep it up and kindest regards!!

Very nice painting!

Thank you for visiting my blog. I just got my CafePress store going a few days ago, so not much has happened yet - I've got a lot to learn about promoting it. I saw some very interesting things on your site.

Thanks again for dropping by!

I can't decide if this is my favorite or the blue truck. There is something about that old truck that seems so comforting and nice.

I would love to be able to draw. Keep doing it for those of us who can't!
