Flowers, Flowers Everywhere

I asked my art instructor Ross one time, "How do you get your stuff in a gallery."  

He replied, "You need to have a focus."  

EEK, well, a focus gal I'm not.  Being a Gemini I'm kind of all over the place in my thoughts and "focus."  

Since I have done the White Clematis and White Rose on 16 x16 canvas and I have a ton of flower pic's that I have taken, I have found a focus.  Let's just say I will have a series of flower paintings.




How's that for focus!  Hopefully, by the fall I will be able to get in a gallery or a show or something.  They are starting to pile up at home and yet I still keep churning out the art.  My therapy!

Plus I have all those old photographs of sepia tones and am getting some drawing done to get a series of them.
