Back at it!

I am happily back at it after foot surgery.

Above you see a study of iris and a rose.
I worked on color and making them all relate to each other.
We are really exploring color in class.

After the study we were to do a quick painting.
I had 20 minutes and created this little work.
It is fresh and lively.

5 x 7


  1. GREAT sale!
    This has a very soft and spring look to it! LOVE IT!

  2. I bet it is wonderful to be painting again after surgery. It would certainly lift MY spirits! Both paintings are so appealing. You've captured the shadows and the lights, the shapes and wonderful colors of your set up. Your brushwork is marvelous. So inspiring, Helen! Thank you!

  3. I thought I had left a comment. Glad I checked back in.
    It is great to see you back and with your lovely use of color and shapes.
    These are both lovely.

  4. I agree on your 20 minute painting, fresh and lively and the colors are beautiful ! Wishing you a quick recovery !

  5. It evokes gentle feeling. Wonderful tender color of flowers.
