|Bouquet in a Watering Can|
mixed media on linen panel 8 x 8 inch
I was taking pictures of this little 8 x 8 inch mixed media in our sun room today and it seemed as if I had painted the room, however that is not quite true. This piece was all about the floral arrangement. I saw a similar arrangement in our local grocer's coupon book and just had to paint the bouquet. The rest of the scene was purely from imagination...or was it? Hmmmm.
Besides painting, I have been planting flowers...
and watching puddle ducks swim and dive in the street! What they are diving for, I Have no clue. I imagine bugs and worms, but whatever it is, we sure enjoy having ducks and geese in the yard so often. Our dog and two cats like to watch them also.
Looking for a good art-related movie to watch? My husband and I recently saw this one which is a story about Klimt's painting Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I. Helen Mirren is spectacular in this one. Here is the trailer:
We had the chance to see the actual painting in New York City at the Neue Gallerie in 2011, not too long after it was purchased. I could not believe my eyes...the depth, the color and her face looked so real. You can get an idea of the size of the painting on their website.
Hope you had a great weekend! Thank you for visiting!
