Julie you ARE the flower . . .

Subliminal suggestion:
Please contact me if you would like this wonderful 5x7 watercolor collage

I am totalee convinced that ALL arrtist's r geeniuses!  Why?  An artist must conceive an idea, determine how he or she will paint this idea and then (appropriately?) TITLE this idea!  Sometimes I think that the title is the hardest part!  I admire Lisa Daria Kennedy who has posted well over 1,200 paintings on her blog . . . that is well over 1,200 paintings plus 1,200 DIFFERENT titles!  How does she do it?  How do YOU do it?

Meanwhile, in my painting above I wanted to try this composition again to see if it would be delightful to craft a T-shape pattern in the top or garment.  IT WAS!  I painted this painting because  I love to paint the figure, flowers and abstract all smacked (an artist term) into one!

Finally, I love this excerpt taken from the blog 'Together We Think Funny'.  Isn't this how we want people to feel about our art?

Titles for paintings is always difficult for me.

I like the collage...the perspective is great and as always you've used such gorgeous colors.

Hi Myra. Sorry I haven't been around much lately. I see you have been really busy painting. I love the way you are creating these beautiful images with so much variety in them. I really relate to the excerpt. I hope each of my paintings can do this for it's new owners.

Hugs.

I like to think I am the one at the top of the post, "Julie you are the flower." Every Julie reading this will get the same glow of pleasure I did.
Your painting is wonderful - as usual.
Love the painting you bought too. In the same way I love your colors and patterns. I can see a similar freedom and joy in the work

Wow, is it a coincidence that you mention Lisa Daria today? I was just checking her blog today too. How does she paint every single day? Wow....
