Rose Tulip

I am having a real tug of war lately between my oils and my gouache.
I have things I really have to get done in oils. Paintings that are unfinished
make me very uncomfortable.
This morning I painted all morning, but I noticed that my heart just
wasn't in it. Have I become a "gouche painter"? Who knows? But it
sure seems like it. For one thing, it's just so much easier. No solvent,
no washing the brushes when I'm done. And, there is something about
the particular mercurial characteristics of the watercolor and the
gouache that I just love.
We'll I'll just keep this up like this for a while and see how it goes.
Today I asked the angels to help me. I believe that they did.
Thanks for stopping by today.

this is so lovely. I like the background flower leaf design setting against the beautiful rose flower/color. And I think the angels/muses are always there waiting for us to call upon them!
