Petunias and Rock


Petunias and Rock
Originally uploaded by linfrye
It was a long drive back to NC from my daughter's yesterday --- and a full day of work. By the time I crawled to Rebecca's I was exhausted and tried to do a quick study of the petunias and rock that sits against her garage door.

Not my best work ... I find it difficult to do really fine work when I'm so tired .. but the practice and discipline of sketching something daily remains .... hopefully today I'll have more time and more energy!

Actually I think this is lovely, it looks as if you went straight in with the brush - very confident.

You're amazing--these look so fresh and lively though they were painted when you were feeling anything but.

Lin, this is a beautiful painting! How do you keep coming up with these lovely flower compositions?
I truly admire your tenacity and dedication to painting even when you are tired. I don't think I could do that. Bravissimo, cara!
