I have been thinking about this picture for months and months.  I got a new canvas — a big, brand new, white canvas.  I want so much to begin.

Always a balancing act to begin new things, finish old things, keep the everyday chores humming, to adjust my schedule to the calendar I keep with others.  But a bit here and a bit there, and incrementally one makes progress.

I am not sure exactly when I’ll start work on the new picture — and it’s the same motif as featured in the post “almost a year ago.” But in this drawing — in this version — the flowers are smaller relative to everything else.  And this is the version I’ll do first.  I might also paint that other version (who can tell).  Somehow, though, this is the one with the magic in it for the present.

I have decided how I’ll start, too.  I am going to draw the composition using blue paint, drawing it in lines, just as above I drew the motif using a pen.

It’ll start all blue and white.  Then I’ll see where it goes from there.
