Today







  Today was the day that I had to put paint to paper.. no doubts about that.. so I drew three circles, wet the entire paper , put some permanent rose in those places, and we know it looked like flowers to me.. so adding a little New Gamboge to the mix, and some Sap Green it turned into a bouquet.. I just let the water do the work.. (I was too lazy)   I admire the work of Fabio Cembranelli and I think it was influencing my thoughts today.. 
I'll try this again, using some thought to placement and color and composition and it will turn out  awful...  It never fails... !!   BJ

  3. This is just so stunning, Barbra Joan! It is somehow both bold and soft and so BJ! I wish I could figure out how to let the paint do its will. Yes. That is it. I'm a control freak. Sigh...

  4. Beautifully loose and fresh painting, BJ. Sometimes when we relax and just doodle away we often produce the best paintings:)

  10. It looks as though the flowers are being blown by a wind source. Really nice work.

  11. Beautifully done, Barbara. You should continue to develop this approach.

    I am so sorry that I missed you in Florida. If you followed our trip journal, you know that things were unpredictable at best. I returned home Thursday night and now I am back to visiting my blog friends.
