Working My Way Out...



I am back on track health wise, but struggling to get my creative mojo working.  I have heaps of projects but finding no interest in carrying them out.  I am sure it happens to all of us when we have a break, or we have been working hard. 

Over the years I have found that going to my watercolours or gouache paints and painting the flowers in my garden help me.  I am sure that the colours spark the inner soul and get me thinking “what if….”  So here are some flowers from my garden I’ve done over the last week or so.  Hopefully, next week I won’t have the reluctance to pick up my brushes and am able to get back on track.  So have a great day and today I am linking this post to the wonderful artistic souls at Paint Party Friday.

my favourite flower of summer
 
This climbing rose made me tear my hair out in frustration, I had 4 goes!
The first year that this Rhodo has flowered.

  2. I hope you are on the mend Sharon I haven't seen you at ppf for a while but perhaps I just missed you as I've not had as much time to visit as many folk as I'd like. Anyway those float paintings are stunning. Are they done by hand or digitally? The tea Rose especially is incredible and I really like your little illustration of the cute person deliberating over picking up her brushes!

  17. Wow, that climbing rose is unbelievable! Well worth the 4 goes! And that first picture is so sweet. You're right, I've just had a break and had a lot of trouble getting my mojo back. But once you start painting or creating, it just comes flowing back to you, you just need to start. You're well on your way with the beautiful flower-paintings ....
