I did it. I set up shop last night and hung out with my palette knife. We are best buds. Completed in the AM today, this dahlia inspired floral portrait is dressed in various green hues with hints of warm and cool patches, just like the ocean’s current.My painting session consisted of Gerry Rafferty Radio on Pandora, delicious colors that felt like butter while mixing and an ice cold martini. Thanks, Nicky.
Gotta love Gamblin’s Transparent Orange. I use it as an intense under painting color and it stuns the eye in details. Here is my floral work in progress. By mid session it reminded me of Blanche’s bedspread in Golden Girls. No Joke. Not good. Had to work on my palette choices. Can you sense the GG’s? or Miami Beach? Well, it is what it is.
Have you painted lately? What colors live on your palette these days?
Thank you for being a friend. -MJ

MaryJo, your work is so inspiring! I love how you use color and build that buttery goodness up!…the movement, and the little bits of detail in all the right places. It’s delicious! I have painted a bit recently, but I find myself starting and not finishing. You have inspired me to get out the goods, and bring my buds back out to play. Thanks for your posts my golden girl!
