|"Spring flowers on the old wall" by Hilary J. England|
oil on canvas, 8" x 10" 2016
Walking around town, I always find little interesting things to paint when I go out of the way, into areas that are somewhat quiet and left to themselves.
This was such an interesting wall, with all it's little flowers and crisscrossed vines, I couldn't help but do a fast oil painting of it. The whole scene with the colors and textures, was very satisfying and soothing. It's nice to be outdoors again, and it feels good if not a little strange after so many days inside because of the rain and rain and rain....
I did drop my palette straight down into the dirt once. That's just to remind me who my Daddy is lolololol. Never mess with nature, even on the calmest of days!
