Made several little drawings as preparations for painting.  I “rehearse” the image a little.  It will help me decide what to paint.

I’m working from photos.  But it dawned upon me as I was working today that some of the flowering shrubs of my photos will be blooming in a few weeks.  Drawing these motifs from photos certainly prepares one for working from life.  I will have engaged many aspects of the scene during my dress rehearsals here before the flowers bloom.  And once they are there blooming before me all in real life …

won’t I be ready!  (Are we having fun yet?  You bet!)
