This painting feels very fresh, and the soft grays and yellows remind me of being outside after rain has cleared. I love how crisp the light is on the stem and how balanced the shapes inside the petals feel.
Can I say I am LOVING the weather we're having in Utah right now? Beautiful and sunny with a cool breeze. I do my drawing outside now, and it's so invigorating.
...wow...now that I've posted this painting to my blog, I can see how perfectly it matches the grays and yellows in my layout. Weird. I guess I really do like those colors.
