New Painting Idea/Sketch - Lotus flowers

Hi Everyone, I was sketching last week for my next painting and did not have a chance to load a pic to my blog.  I have a show coming up this Saturday August 25th from 8am - 1pm at the Cumberland Market and decided to do another floral painting for the show. 

This time I am going to paint some hot pink lotus flowers.   I have already started the painting and hope to finish in the next day or two.   Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead.

Here is my rough sketch for my next painting:

New Floral Painting Sketch

Hi Everyone, Well it's been so far a hot crazy summer here in Ottawa! Have also had a hard time returning to work after my California vacaction.

Before starting my 3rd Cinque Terre - Manrola painting, I figured I would warm up with a floral. This is my rough sketch idea of beautiful white Frangipanis for my next painting. I just love these tropical flowers and thought I would paint them on a large canvas. "Caribbean Gems"
