"Cone Flower"



Lately, I've been reading about the mental side of of golf and tennis, and believe it or not I received an email about the mental side of painting. About feeling, and seeing and trusting... Also, I've been looking at paintings from Picasso for some reason... Anyway, this little painting is a result of just looking and feeling the flower. As I held this flower in my hand I remembered the way it looked when I first plucked it from the garden, I held it to the canvas and looked at the shadow it cast and from that I produced this. I'm not sure what I think about the painting, but I did enjoy the experience.

I love reading about the process you went through before you started painting. Beautiful result!
