If you know me you know I am obsessed with color! Right now I feel that there are so many glorious flowers in bloom in every shade of pink and purple. Maybe it’s because I have more time this summer to notice during this time of pause we are in. Taking my daily neighborhood walks with Scout, puttering around the garden and just observing more than usual.
Lately I have been creating lots of small abstract art on paper choosing color palettes that inspired by all these florals that I see. The other day I spent the afternoon arranging all sorts of bouquets and also taking these photos (it felt like I was making art just doing this!)
Scabiosa, petunia, sweet peas, lavender, love-in-the-mist and clematis
Matilija poppy, rose, sweet peas, sage and mandevilla
Rose, scabiosa, sweet peas, fuschia, succulent and abutilon
Rose, mandevilla, scabiosa, sweet peas, succulents and agapanthus
Finding these beautiful color palettes from the garden has given me so much inspiration to paint these little 5x7 mixed media on paper! Acrylics, Neo Colors, Stabilos, Inks and Pencils!
