Fall Flowers

fall flowers

The leaves are already off the trees, and I am longing for the bright and cheeful colors of flowers.

I sketched this vase and flowers rather quickly -- and though it's a bit loose, still not as 'painterly' as I'm trying to practice and incorporate into my work. I had to add that touch of ink -- as a Libra, I'm always trying to balance between my typical 'detailed' and my longed for 'painterly loose' ... !!! LOL

Oh the flowers are so nice -- but I am amazed with the vase -- I seem to muddle those beyong belief -- yours truly does look clear with blue shadows. Lovely.
Hugs,

I've been feeling a little blue the past couple days and seeing your pretty flowers and vase cheered me up this morning. Now it's off to work (bleah) but only for two more days (yay).

But it's beautiful, Lin. I especially love the water.

I think it's perfect Lin. :o) Just the right balance and so beautiful. Well done.

Gosh I am a Libran too but Im not sure I have what you have. Love the vase and the flowers are so fresh looking.

You really have an affinity with flowers and vases, I love seeing the latest one! Hmm, you triggered a thought because I have a Libra ascendent although I'm a Cancerian (ascendent is very important!) and the Libra influence is strong but when you wrote that I suddenly realised why I think and write so much about balance! (Doh!)
