Squash Blossoms


Happy New Year!
I've been wanting to paint squash blossoms since enjoying them in my quesadillas this summer and also painting my Ken Edwards pitcher. After a few days of holiday fall out, I got back to work and this painting seemed to flow out of the brushes by itself. . . I love when that happens especially since it hardly ever happens.
I tackled my most problematic color. . yellow! oddly enough, that was the easiest area to paint, go figure. This year, I intend to challenge myself to paint more and to continue growing as an artist.

Hey Pablo, I have been very tardy in thanking you for tagging me and for linking to my blog. I just linked to yours. Congratulations on being the featured artist on the California Watercolor Association web site as well. Your work is beautiful.

Pablo, I love what you are doing with your blog! I'm putting it on my google page so I can keep up with every new painting. The squash blossoms are vibrant!

You have a lot going on, I'm so glad you are not still stuck in the first grade!

Yellow is a difficult color but you've handled it very well. The light on this is wonderfully captured!

I don't remember if I found you or you found me in the blogosphere. That's what it's all about though.
Your paintings are lovely and thanks for stopping by my blog.

Wow, such glow. Love eating these as much as looking at them.
