Painting!

Flower Power, 2011,  Gouache, ink, watercolor paint

Remember this painting, that I was unhappy with?
 

Well, I gessoed over those flowers in the middle and added some other colors to change the scheme a bit.  I'm going to add a bit more line work, probably in white or light gray.



I testing out some new methods for lettering!  I'm going to make some greeting cards.

That top one would make a great fabric for a silk sari. I don't know why but that just popped into my head when I saw it, LOL.
