Day 14 of 30
While on Bainbridge Island earlier this summer I found this little terra cotta pot spilling over with geraniums. The sun was just setting casting lacy shadows onto the pot. A beautiful site! I spent quite a bit of time today fiddling with the flowers struggling to get them right...then I reminded myself of the importance of the shadows...not necessarily the flowers. The flowers were there for color...but the real story is told in the shadows. I was finally able to step back, relax and just let the painting dictate what it needed. While it's not exactly how I imaged it would turn out...the more I look at it the more I like it. The story of my life!
