Watercolor Painting of Flowers

A Mixed Bouquet of Garden Flowers
In an Old Glass Jar
Another in my series of mixed bouquets.  My favorite type of bouquet -
casual and easy, fresh out of the garden,
in an unpretentious old kitchen jar.
Just like grandma used to do it.

Baby Bird Figurine

I like baby bird figurines, so I searched for some pretty ones
 to add to my floral still life scenes. I'm doing some individual studies of them,
to get a feel for them, before I begin adding them to my florals.

Watercolor Painting Flowers

Have you noticed there aren't very many purple flowers? While listening to an"Artists Helping Artists" broadcast the other day, I doodled these unidentified purple flowers.

Watercolor Painting Pink Flowers

I wanted to tell my fellow artists about the neatest site on the internet for artists. It's a blog with live broadcasts called "Artists Helping Artists". It is the creation of two very talented and successful oil painters, Leslie Saeta and Dreama Tolle Perry. These two fabulous ladies are amazingly generous with their valuable time. Every week they do a live broadcast of a subject that is of interest to artists. They also archive the broadcasts. On the right side of the blog is a list of the archived broadcasts, and you can click on them to listen to them at any time. Subjects include how to sell your art online, how to photograph your art, using Facebook to sell your art, and many many more. These ladies are both powerhouses and I can't believe how generous they are. They also have live interviews with very successful and respected artists, such as Carol Marine. Check it out at

Floral Bouquet Watercolor Painting

Garden Flowers in an Old Glass Jar
Painted in watercolor, of course, on Fabriano CP watercolor paper.
I love casual mixed bouquets of garden flowers.
Fresh and easy and informal, in an old glass jar.
