This is a work in progress. But look how much we did in 2.5 hours! Days like these are my absolute favorite. My friend L came over with a giant canvas and her sister E and we got our art on together. Our muse was Erin Fitzhugh Gregory, and our inspiration was a bouquet of flowers. (or maybe that’s the other way around?)
Anyways, I just had all my paint and brushes out and we went for it. Minor planning and chatting in the beginning, then we dove in- each with our preferred style of starting (I on a pre-painted canvas outlining with paint, L on bare canvas with pencil.) It’s the best to just chat along the way, admiring each other’s colors and shapes. And so. much. laughing. There was even a point where I held baby Fi in one arm and painted with the other.
Here are some snap shots of our afternoon:
I was tempted to leave my painting like this – cool huh? I’ve been really inspired by Van Gogh’s Iris painting lately and was trying to imitate him with my snapdragons. I need to go buy more canvases.
Who’s coming over tomorrow?!
