Waiting for the Vase
Believe it or not, I did paint every night this week. The problem was all of them where stinkers until tonight. I'm not sure I've ever had a week where I wiped off so many paintings; I just couldn't find my groove. Well, I suppose that happens from time to time. When my wife brought home these carnations, I thought they might be a nice change of pace from all of the fruit and vegetables I've been painting lately. They also gave me a chance to use one of the new plates I picked up last week at the thrift store. I really enjoy painting these types of plates with the decorative border on them. It's such a great design element. I can't quite put my finger on why that is, other then they usually have some great colors in them and they bring a certain level of detail to the painting that I really like.
