July is almost over, and I have barely had time to enjoy my family and our garden. Mike brought me these lovely little roses today from the garden, knowing how much I enjoy them. Since I struggle with painting flowers, I decided this was a good challenge for me for my "day off". So...I set them up in this crystal vase and picked up the palette knife to begin the attack! I am rarely disappointed in palette knife paintings. They are juicy with bold slashes of color and texture which I find appealing in nearly any subject.
Re-opening of Beaux Arts Gallery is this Thursday with our kick-off event "Thursday Nights LIVE!" beginning at 7PM. We clean up the balance of the odds and ends tomorrow, and begin hanging art on Tuesday. The renovations have taken up the majority of our time this month, but we are excited now that our first event is approaching.
Mike, thanks for making me stop and smell the roses today...
