Inspired by a Field of Flowers
My approach here was somewhat different that the painting I posted yesterday. I splattered water on the paper and dropped in random watercolor paints in colors that I liked. There were no attempts to help create particular shapes. When the initial paints dried, I used more of an ink-blot approach and tried to 'see' flower shapes' within the spontaneous patterns. This 'field of flowers' was the result.
I've back to back meetings and more gardens to install today -- so I'll see everyone later tonight. We're in for a bit of rain, and we're planning to welcome the 'downing' of all the air-borne pollen. I don't know a soul who hasn't been coughing or sneezing!
