Flower Ladies

Two weeks from today Bring on the Blooms opens at Art and Soul Gallery in High River. Today, we three flower ladies painted together, in Annie's studio behind the gallery. From a sumptuous garden, surrounding her studio, Annie picked the bouquet we all painted.

Linda placed the vase on the chair and we set to work. Here's mine at the start ...

Linda's ...

And one of Annie's ...

Are the paintings awesome? Nope, not yet. Will they make the cut? You'll have to come to the show to see!

When we'd tired of pushing oil paint around Annie encouraged us to "play" with watercolour on yuko paper; it's very shiny and slippery. The paint can be pushed, lifted and messed around with in a multitude of ways. And then Annie showed us how to take a mono print from it.

Did we have a grand time? Oh yes. There really is something to be said about the energy and joy of painting in the company other artists. It's rich.
