I’m continuing with my promise to myself to paint what I find around me rather than buying flowers from the flower shop.
I’ve also committed to painting mostly flowers for a while.
This is partly because they’re a challenge, and partly (mostly) because the more time I spend here in the Cotswolds surrounded by nature, the more I want to paint only this.
I have a feeling that a deeper connection with nature may bring more peace of mind, perhaps more happiness. Certainly the slow contemplation of nature that I find myself involved in when I’m making flower paintings seems to be a healthy thing.
Expect more roses this summer 🙂
