I was going through my watercolor paintings that I did a few years ago. When I came across this one, it evoked a lot of emotions. I can remember clearly the beautiful warm summer day in Oregon. I had picked up the watermelon, pear and grapes the day before...I took everything outside, picked a daisy. I set up the still life on a table, took many pictures at different angles. Then I went to a watercolor workshop I was taking. I wanted to learn more about painting with reds, the shading and highlighting staying away from pinks. I learned so much

Love it! And you did it while you were nearby in Oregon! Wish we lived closer to each other so we could have a good, long chat! Someday, my friend. Someday!

Laurie, this is so pretty. SUCH a great still life. You just get better and better. How can that be? How can you improve upon perfection?!?

Big tx hugs,
