A vase full of fresh cut blossoms 29

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, January 21, 2016 @ 7:05 PM | , , , , ,

Hi! The weather is gorgeous here in Phoenix and I have a bad case of spring fever :) With the sun shining bright, pretty blue skies and warm 70 degree temperatures, it's hard not to when you love the great outdoors like I do. I took advantage of the beautiful day and went for a 6.5 mile run. Today I have a painting to share featuring my first canvas of fresh cut painted blossoms:
 Here's my source of inspiration:
Here's my interpretation:
I attended an art class at Krista Eaton's (a local talented artist's whom work I admire) home studio. After Krista gave us a painting demonstration, she set us free to paint our canvas. I applied various techniques that I learned from Nancy Medina's amazing painting videos that Scott gave me to me for a Christmas gift. Once we had some color on our canvas's Krista offered her expertise. I didn't get very far along in class, as I am a newbie and paint VERY slow but I was thrilled to receive Krista's input and learn some tips and tricks of the business. I finished the painting this morning which means the oil is still wet and will be for a few days! 



I'm entering this in the 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge: Day 21:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have a great Friday!
Be Sweet ;)
