Art : Lilac Blooms

My latest artwork is a painting of hydrangeas and lilacs on a wooden bench in the countryside. The painting is done on a 18″ x18″ canvas using acrylic paints. It is inspired by an artwork by a Russian artist.

Below is an image of the painting-

Lilac Blooms- work in progress

With this painting, I’m going back to watercolors. I don’t intend picking up a canvas until I do a few watercolors first. There’s just so much of art I want to do and learn, that I’m finding it difficult dividing my time fairly between art, writing, blogging and reading. I feel writing and poetry have faded into the background. I don’t like the fact that they have but I find there’s no point in fighting it – words can’t be forced out. They come when they have to. Until they return, I must carry on with art, reading and blogging. All Rights Reserved.

    Hi! Just want to mention that you have a typo – www/ instead of www. in your link to your website. It doesn’t take you to the right spot when you click on it. Lovely art!

    This painting is lovely, Smitha. Life is all about choices. I also have to chose between writing, blogging, cake art and cooking. Sometimes I write up a storm and other times I do a lot of cooking and artwork. It is a mood thing and I need the mix to keep me inspired.

      Thank you so much, dear Robbie for appreciating the painting and understanding my dilemma. Knowing that I’m not the only one who feels like this, helps…especially knowing that you, who is wearing so many different hats to perfection, also has to make choices. I’ll just go with my mood then and not worry about it. Thanks so much, Robbie❤
