Yellow Callas, 12″ x 24″, acrylics

Well, after almost two months hiatus (due to general business with family stuff, visitors and a lumbar sprain), I am back to painting!

I decided to go with something different and painted flowers that I had added to my terrace. It made me realize that, even though I love flowers, I prefer to paint eyes! (Hmmm… an eye flower painting, that’s an idea..! hehe). But, here it is.

I have to say, even though flowers are not my favorite subject, I learned a lot from this painting. I learned particularly a lot about the subtlety of shading one color (in this case, the yellow) and the play of light with forms. Plus, flowers are so colorful!

Hopefully I’ll have time soon for another painting! With eyes..!
