One more detail to round out the day, though the tease has past.  Here’s another detail of the crepe myrtles scene that’s in the works because mooshing the painting around is why we paint.


crepe myrtles are the best

Ta dah!  Well, here’s an early swipe at a crepe myrtles painting measuring 40 x 30 inches.  I love everything about crepe myrtles — love the flowers, love painting them, love the season when they bloom while cicadas are singing.  And I am loving using acrylic paint in transparent veils of color — somewhat watercolorish looking in character, though very different from watercolor in the painting of it.
