Landscape Artist Get the Most Google Searches
--Did you know that Lee Rowley,(author of the book I was telling you about, wrote that the art category for the most Google searches was landscapes! So why am I knocking myself out painting all these flowers? Because flowers are delightfully colorful and paint is about color; they are also the easiest to have around the studio in seasons where plein air is out of the question. This maybe the last flower painting, maybe not? The roses my son and family sent for my BD live on limp and dry. The water evaporated from the vase three days ago. I'm finding them to be a nice relief from figure drawing. Dead, they are still the gift that keeps on giving paintings-- till the weather changes and landscapes become more attractive. I hung Winter on the observation wall and the temperature in the room dropped ten degrees! That's enough winterscape for me.
Have a lovely weekend everybody. Spend it doing something you love with someone/something you love. I'm spending mine with a gorgeous, strokable charcoal paper that just arrived UPS. It's time I move my figure beyond the study stage. If I don't, that sweetheart could be a toddler when I feel satisfied enough to reach for the canvas.
