flowers in a barrel

I've had a hard time getting back in to painting after being away from it for so long. I've been most successful at putting it off. This is my first effort and it seems very self conscious. I hate to post it amid these latest wonderful paintings but, oh well, it's part of learning.


  1. Hi Paula! Don't worry about the other paintings here, your doing great! Thankyou for your courage to post! I like the treatment of the leaves and flowers here and the colours. I would have like to see a bit more sophistication in the barrel like a few lines to suggest boards!
    Thank you for all your contributions Paula!

  2. Keep em commin' Paula. It must be so exciting starting up again in sunny Florida!!

    Standing in front of an empty canvas with wet brush in hand will usually get ya goin'. (no fear)

    Try to make sure you have an idea of where you want your focal point to be when you begin and try to keep it in mind as you go (:-)
