The kitchen's a mess!

"Lady in Red"   10"x8" mixed media on canvas
Last night, while painting the Spring rose, I listened to a podcast from last January when Leslie Saeta interviewed Lisa Daria. As a result I was inspired to try to wake up early (5 AM-ish) and paint a flower/rose. So last night before going to bed, I thought I'll get the coffee pot ready and have it automatically come on at 5 AM, the smell will help me wake up. This morning I woke up about 5:10, shuffled around and found my way to the kitchen. The coffee pot didn't come on, I didn't hit the "on" button after I set the preset. Oops, oh well, I hit the on button and away I go. Light, I needed a light for the rose... found one. Long story short, I struggle with that little rose painting and I wiped it off. I decided to work on this little girl instead. I started this in November sometime, well she is a lot closer. After seeing it as a photo, I may need to do just a little more. She also gave me a few more ideas for future paintings... time.

I may try this routine again tomorrow, maybe get a flower painted this time.

I taught a W&C painting with a great group tonight and I was going to use my painting as one of the 30 paintings in 30 days but I forgot to take a photo of it! Oops again!

Good Night...

PS:  The kitchen is a mess with painting supplies!

This is a great painting! I love the vibrant colors! Did you get up early today and paint? Or are you STILL asleep?
