Dancing in the Sunshine with my computer

DANCING IN THE SUNLIGHT - 7 X 10.5 - Watercolour
     The sun has been shining lately, yes, it is freezing out but somehow I can forget that when the sun shines.  It is a great inspiration for painting flowers dancing in the sun.  My poppies in our front yard are a great source for reference material; they are those great big ones in a lovely orgie-red colour.  I have photographed, drawn and painted them numerous ways.  I just never get tired of their wonderful lines and shapes.  This is my latest.  (Notice I even changed their colour this time!)
     Can you live without your computer? I wasn’t sure I could but I did find out this week.  My son took mine for “an upgrade” for a few days, it turned into 6.  Yes, I can live without it, had lots more time to paint and draw but I feel so behind with that other part of my life and business!!  I can definitely say my computer is an important part of my art business, how about you?

This was an earlier miniature poppy painting that was one of my favourites: http://www.artbywendysblog.blogspot.ca/2009/05/great-news-with-my-miniatures.html
Long gone now.

As always, cards and prints of any of my work are available starting at $3.50.

Beautifully done, Wendy!

Thanks Karen, I spent a lot of time trying to decide what colour to use for the background. Permanent Rose is not an easy colour to work with.

Thank you Studio at the Farm, I really enjoyed this piece and it has inspirited me to try a few more of my poppies.

Thanks Gillian, I must admit it really gives a lift every time I look at it. Dancing in the Sunshine will be part of the Works on Paper Show, at the Federation Gallery on Granville Island for Feb. 5-17. I am going to miss seeing the painting each day!
