Oh , not another flower painting?

No matter what I paint I'm always in my element painting flowers. Sometimes I feel pressured to paint other subjects. Why should that be?  I'm not a landscape, seascape or a still life painter.. I'm a painter of flowers,, nothing gives me as much joy as when I'm doing the flower dance.  LOL !  So boring 'ole me paints yet another flower.

  5. Oh BJ. You are one of the least boring people I know. Paint what moves you; that is all that matters, I think. Your florals are always beautiful. Look at Nancy Medina; her florals are almost a second career.

  8. And I'm a Still-Life Painter by nature. It is funny how we all find something we love to paint and we are all so different. I hate painting landscapes! You are totally natural at painting flowers! Beautiful!!

  15. Oh bring on the flowers BJ. The more the better in my view. Just now I am even making them out of fabric, in a Japanese sort of way! :)

  16. I guess we are both happily boring. This from one flower painter to another. You are not boring young lady. Lovely painting Barbra Joan. How has your weather been? We get an occasional nice day but mostly rain.

  17. Dear BJ,
    Oh, I totally understand your enthusiasm and joy in flowers. Exactly the same I have in figures! Your flowers are so beautiful and very heartwarming. It's your personality, isn't it? Keep your favorite area most. I also totally agree with your headder's writing on limited time left on the world. Let us live this life fully!!
    Best wishes and kind regards, Sadami

  21. Wonderful colors and organic natural forms. Reminds me of a painting like Rainy landscape, by Russian painter
    Kandinsky, http://EN.WahooArt.com/

    , that I saw at wahooart.com, from where one can order a canvas print of it.
    Really good place to browse the painter’s work and other work similar to your style of painting.
