Sometimes when I’m not sure about the painting I can still enjoy the palette.
This is a big one, 30″ x 40″. I have to do some more work on the middle of the flower. It was a bit fiddly and made the spots behind my ears hurt when I worked on it too long. For now I’ve hung it in my bedroom and at dawn I enjoy watching it turn from a dark shape to a bright thing. I’m not sure it will stay this bright, and I’m not sure if the background is staying or changing, although I like the light parts on the right side and the splash of blue, but I am enjoying the process! And the size!! Just a really fun thing to walk by. The petals really were sort of weird like that, with big gaps between them. Less so as the flower opened more.
