“Even in ‘weeds’ you will find sacred geometry. Look at the littlest of things and bask in their beauty.” ~ Red Deer.
While my painting is really of the dandelions that you blow off the stem – the airy white ones – I was outside and saw some jumbo yellow ones. They seem to want to sit by this painting to keep it company while it’s drying completely.
Looks nice on my bookshelf. I created this today using a variety of techniques: wax resist, varying my brushes, lifting paint off the paper, using both watercolor and gouache paints.
Trying to do extraordinary things in paint with ordinary subject matter – mostly recreating the feels these subjects have for me now. Today, where I live, it’s very warm – almost summer-like, yet it is still spring. And it’s oh so dry (we need rain). “These weeds have needs,” I thought as I plucked the big yellow dandelion out of the grass this morning to put in water in my little vase.
