paint day

Yesterday, was paint day. A group of artist/friends get together and to work in someone's home or studio. It was almost canceled this month due to an untimely medical emergency by one member, you guessed it, the hosting artists spent their day in the hospital rather then in the studio. We were able to move the event to another studio with only a few hours notice. I always paint well with this crowd. Yesterday was no exception. I painted an arrangement of flowers from my garden. I selected these flowers for there color harmonies; thinking about how they will work in the painting–not just choosing everything in bloom in a perfusion of color that I would typically bring to paint.
