Travel Theme?

Savannah, Georgia

Duval Street, Key West, Florida
This coming week the local art guild that I've joined will be hanging paintings in our Library.  That's  fine with me and then I hear it's a theme of travel.. Great, I'm a floral painter, and do portraits in pencil.  Are you thinking what I'm thinking?  I don't do landscapes and when I do they're works that are in the bottom of the pile.. After a lot of searching (in the bottoms of drawers) , I came up with two that I did from photos I'd taken.   One from Savannah and the other from Key West..
That's the extent of my travel paintings.  Now why wasn't the theme flowers? oh right.....,that would have been too easy..

Not Always About Painting!

 Can you guess what this flower was made from?  From a corn husk,.... my friend made corn over the weekend, dried these and I loved the color .. so  what could I do with them? .... Of course ...corn husk flowers..!!!!!
    Since I wasn't painting and have to create something  every day.... whether it's a full size painting , or a corn husk flower !
I think I'll pin it to a basket. .It's about four inches around,  so go  cook some corn and make your flower.!!..  BJ
