New painting

Today I finished working on my current watercolor, "Edible Flowers", a diptych which is 15"x23". It's my first painting of artichokes and it was really fun to do! I'm now ready to start my next painting!

    1. Thank you so much Gail. I'm entering it in Segil Fine Art's Summer Show. Hope it gets accepted. The show theme is "The Farmer's Market-from Field to Farm, Market to Table". I thought it was a pretty cool theme!

  4. The reference photo I took from the Arlington Gardens when I was there with you looked like two separate paintings. I thought doing a diptych would be a nice way to paint the whole thing in two parts.
    Hope all is well with you. Sounds like you are doing a lot of reading and had a good visit with the kids! Painting?

  5. It's so beautiful and so well painted, Kittie! I love how you have a few leafy bits extending from one frame to the other.

  6. This is another beauty Kathleen. You've got such a beautiful variety of greens in this painting and I love the purples. The diptych format is perfect.
