Orange Ranunculus and Daisies 16

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, August 23, 2016 @ 10:17 PM | , ,

Hi there! I hope you are having a great week! Today I have a 24" x 24" painting to share with you that I was inspired by Nancy Medina's Orange Ranunculus and Daisies video tutorial and a lot of encouragement from my sweet husband. All this painting takes a lot of practice but my dear husband's patience is wearing thin because I keep telling him "I'm just practicing" but he's ready to see some art work hung around the house ;) LOL  ***Please keep in mind, this style of painting is impressionistic not realistic***

Here's my first attempt. I had painted the transparent underpainting and had worked on the vase which was quite large and lopsided. 
With a little effort and a lot of turpenoid, I removed the entire painting and was left with the semi stained canvas shown below:
I'm linking my painting to the current Paint Party Friday post:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)

Beautiful Art work Mona. As others have said, I think you are tough on yourself. I'd be delighted to have your art on my wall. It's so interesting to see the process.

It is absolutely amazing to me that you create such beauty out of the first "rough" drafts/beginnings of your paintings. Funny..when I look at a beautiful painting, I don't think how the starting and mid-points looked! Many would be satisfied to have your paintings just as they are...beautiful.

So very, very gorgeous - and it makes me smile!

Hi Mona,

You are so wrong!!!! That style of painting is called SUBLIME!!!!
And YES , you should start hanging them on your walls, they are SPECTACULAR! Once again I am willing to "sacrifice" myself so you can send me your "rejects"!
I hope that your sister is doing much better! Our thoughts are with you and your family!

I'm amazed that you don't hand your paintings up, Mona! They are all beautiful! I most certainly would display any of your paintings if I had one.
