Today I went to the florist and bought myself a bouquet to use as a still life.  It smells so good.

What do you think?  Should i keep going down this floral road or stop?  Honest feedback is hard to hear but always helpful.  I was trying to get out of my husband what he thought and he couldn’t give me a good answer for that question.

Our conversation went like this.

Me:  What do you think of this painting?

Him:  It’s nice.

Me:  (not sure what I said)  I probably just kept looking at him.

Him: It’s a pretty subject so it’s pretty.

Me:  But is it pretty as a painting?

Then we decided it was the prettiest pretty painting ever.  And we were both joking.

He’s a chemist, art doesn’t come easy to him.  But I’m not sure it come so easy to anyone.

  1. I like what you are doing with the flowers. This has a nice composition and beautiful use of light. I’d say keep going until you feel you are ready to move on.


  2. this is great! very talented! if you want to bring those roses to life- have a look at my blog or for fabulous scents from soap & glory!


  3. It’s beautiful! I love the multiple shades and tones in the painting (i’m not sure if those are the right terms to use.. I hope you get what I was trying to convey!). Can’t wait to see your next artwork.
