From Artist's Blog 7/9/08 Today I received a gift of a bunch of potted Black-eyed Susans from a mother of one of my son’s friends. I was so excited that I had to paint one en plain aire. This lovely little lady stood up and away from the bunch, almost with a defiance to get the best light of the day. It has been a long time since I painted from a live subject and it was invigorating. For this summer I planned to go out to the Flint Hills and paint directly from life but haven’t found an afternoon that could be dedicated to the 40 mile trip. What a better way than to bring the native wildflowers directly to my back porch to paint them… an inspiration. Maybe I’ll have to visit the nursery tomorrow and fill my back porch with additional blooms!
