This didn't start out so well. First it was a painting of my bleeding heart flowers. Really bad. Wiped it down. Next it was a lush yellow tulip. That went south faster than the bleeding hearts. After another good wipe I almost left the studio thinking it just wasn't in the cards and then I decided to try a portrait. There was no one around to model so I flipped through some old magazines and found a number of photos reprinted from the 30s and some of the people caught my eye. They were yelling: paint me! So I complied. This one, as they say, fell off the brush. To me I imagined this dress was soft yellow and she was off to a dance where there would be lemonade and sweets. I'm going to try more in the coming days.
