starting something new
An artful day today starting with a great meeting of the Portland Plein Air and Studio Painters. We talked about art shows, art technique, art inspiration, art ideas. It was wonderful and inspiring! After the meeting, several of us went back to Carolyn's place for more sketching and what has been teasingly called "the meeting after the meeting." It is good to keep drawing skills sharp and I always enjoy sketching. See what the others sketched here.

When I got back to my own studio, I tore apart the fading flowers from my big bouquets, created smaller arrangements, and started a new painting. It's looking like spring over here with these lovely flowers!

Nice that after the 2 meetings you still were in the mood to create. Your sketches are really nice .. love the subjects.

The beginning of your floral looks exactly like the subject---pretty! I'll be tuned in to see the finish :) Also your sketches are great--it was a good day!

Love the sketch of the brushes. And, I always like when the actual subject is shared (the flowers and painting.)
