Little Scissors, Little Flowers


sold

Often I will go to the grocery store and buy a bunch of props to use, and then feel guilty if I don't paint them for as long as they stay fresh, even if I get sick of them before then. Lately I have tried to ignore that guilt and be a bit more spontaneous with what I paint. I saw these flowers on a walk, picked them, and painted them right away. No thinking about it. No glancing at the apples still in a bowl in my studio.
