"Begonia Glow" - SOLD
Click Here to Bid
I was at the grocery store looking at flowers to buy for a larger painting when I saw a potted Begonia plant. The flowers are just gorgeous! I brought them home and commenced to spend many many fruitless hours trying to compose them in a way (in and out of the pot) that suited. I did a couple, including this one, but still don't feel I did the flowers justice. Now I've got half a Begonia plant in a pot, propped up because it'll fall over otherwise. Very sad.
And I was sad too. Oh I talk about how I don't get so emotionally involved anymore, but we all have our days. So I decided to sit down and spend some time thinking about what I really want to paint. I spent half a day browsing paintings on the internet and sketching in my sketchbook and it was the best thing I've done for myself in a while. I think we probably all need to rethink things every once in a while. I came up with some new ideas that I'm very excited about.
