I was roaming through the house a few weeks ago looking for something to paint. I found a blue vase with yellow artificial flowers my daughter-in-law, Lelia, had given me years ago for my office. I have always loved it.
I never know where my composition will go, but I love the journey. When I was in Las Cruces with the guild, Julie suggested I try using a stencil for the background. What fun! I've used in another painting and love the energy it gives to the painting.
