A PRETTY PERFECT STORM

July 14, 2017

You know those times when from all different directions, circumstances come together and the results is perfect?  Well, here's my story.

 

About a week after Hub and I returned home from a fun fishing vacation with my daughter and her husband, this plant was delivered to my doorstop.  I wasn't expecting any packages so was excited and happy to open this lovely gift and find it was from my daughter.  What a sweetheart.

 

The hydrangea, Calla lilies and oregano came together to make a fresh and beautiful arrangement.   But the hydrangea!  It just sparkled with pretty and pink.  I had seen watercolor paintings of hydrangeas and wondered if I would ever want to paint one. 

 

 

 

 

By the start of the next week, after checking my calendar, I realized I could devote as many days in this week as I wanted to a project like this.  By the end of the work day week my pretty, perfect storm was born.

 

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know I revealed my process through the days from start to finish.  Today I printed the image out in different sizes, and on different papers.  This afternoon, I've finished a little photo shoot and will be adding the prints to my Etsy shop tomorrow.

 

It was a great week.  I love to paint and tomorrow I will mail off a new "thank you" card to my daughter.  We do text throughout the week, but there's nothing that says love like receiving a tangible gift in the mail.
