When I paint, no matter what the subject matter is, I always strive to paint with loose, expressive brush strokes, using bold, vivid colors and a sense of humor. I work very spontaneously, mostly in mixed aqua media on paper because I like the way the paint flows and I like the transparency of the colors resulting in an organic piece. I constantly experiment with colors, techniques and subjects.
I did this drawing on location and finished the painting in the studio. The lady of the house kept changing her plants. Started with two pots and ended up with a porch full of flowers. It was kinda funny. She was so sweet. Wish I could have gotten her in the painting but may do this one again and included her .
