Day Two Hundred Thirty Eight


6 x 8 oil on panel
85.00 + 6.00 s + h

I used a very dark maroon ground for this one. It was a painting that I painted over, and because it had some darks in it, I had to make the ground really dark. Well, it wasn't quite dry, and kept mixing with my new colors, so I had to apply the paint really thickly. A whole different look, but at least it's looser, the way I've always CLAIMED to be wanting to GO !!
I'm not sure it will even ever dry, because I just remembered, I had varnished that other painting underneath !! ha ha !!!


  1. This is beautiful! I like the texture in the shadow, and the hint of lavender in the pot. Beautiful colors in the flower, also. I'd never know this painting presented a challenge--it looks great!

  2. I forgot to mention, one reason I think this painting is so pretty is that it is so harmonious. I like that the background is the same color as the flower. Very nice.

  3. YOu are SOOO good with flowers. Not boring, beautifully painted and great color decisions.
