Hi! I hope you are having a great weekend! It has been raining nearly all day everyday here in Phoenix for the past week. I was beginning to think I lived in Seattle! The sun is shining bright today and the skies are a clear, pretty robin's egg blue color ~ Life is Good :) Today I have a page to share that I painted in my canvas paper art journal featuring a garden of pink peonies:
I combined painting techniques learned from: David Jansen and Nancy Medina, two talented artists whose art work I admire. This page was painted using Liquitex acrylics.
I'm learning so much as I practice stroke techniques and experiment using different mediums. I'm getting closer to my painting goal which is to paint a variety of LARGE sized canvases for some empty walls in my home.
I love an impressionist style because the strokes don't have to be perfect and there's a lot of room for error :) I got a little carried away with my brush and paint and broke one of the golden painting rules ~ I painted two flowers on the same plane as shown below. I'm learning and evolving with each stroke.
I'm entering this painted page in the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
