Today was all about mailing tax returns, windstorms and power outages. We're having wind gusts of 50 to 60 mph, and let me just say, it has been a bad hair day! The next time our weatherman issues a "Weenie Dog" alert, Rodeo and I are going to stay inside!
Painting this little pink carnation provided a much welcome respite from the blustery day. I really enjoy the way a color's true value is reflected against a mid-tone gray, so that was my focus. Also, experimenting with mixing warm grays and cool grays. Usually, I don't re-work my daily paintings, but I think that I may darken the background on this one. I'm still considering it. If I make any changes, I'll be sure to post the new image for you.
