Photo Friday with Art

Keep going!
My photos for Friday seem to be about paintings lately. It used to be about fun things I'd see during my day. Is it me or is it that "fun" things aren't happening? Could it be that my brain is in the clouds, thinking about painting? Maybe.

Moving along now. I started adding in some shadow on this painting to keep it interesting. Darks against lights make me want to continue. There's something about the contrasts that I like.

Those little blueberries are going to give me trouble if I pay too much attention to them. You know what happens next, right? Too much attention, too much working it, ends up in the trash.

The plan is to take my time, work all around the piece, let things dry and keep going. Work it.

Process, baby! Process.


  1. This is coming along nicely Dora.

  2. It looks amazing, love the colors in the flowers, light against dark, beautiful.

    1. Thanks Maria. Yes, light against dark, aahhh.

  3. ahhhh, taking ones time, this I must learn,
    This work is beautiful, I know exactly what you mean about the berries, I tend to not know when enough is enough then whoops too much!!!

    1. Thank you Laurie. I've been working on this today, and yes, I had to step away! Whoops is right!
