Botanical Challenge

I finished a 14 day challenge posed by artist Esra Alhamal on her website. I enjoyed painting 14 different types of flowers, coming up with the color scheme and practicing outlining with black ink!

“Don’t swim tonight my love”

NOT AVAILABLE FOR SALE  The title is a line from the song “Ocean” by Lou Reed When I went to Michaels the other day, I noticed black canvases and I was surprised they existed! I wondered what they’re for! So I bought some, because I am like that. I like experimenting with new stuff “relatively”!…

“Come back, have faith”

The title is a line from the song ” Soon” by My Bloody Valentine.

“They got the blues. You give them the blues”

NOT AVAILABLE FOR SALE  The title is a line from the song Crabsody in Blue by AC/DC. The beauty of this picture is that you can’t tell if the white belt in the back is mountain, waves or clouds… I even can’t decide what I want it to be. But that’s how art works, doesn’t…
