Technically Weeds

I love walking in the spring and discovering new flowers and life coming up, even if the flowers are technically weeds :)

Semi-Abstract Flowers

Original Watercolor Flowers, Semi-Abstract Style by Elise Engh: Grow Creative

I've painted many flowers in my five years experience with watercolor and I probably will keep painting them for the rest of my life.  This time I took a more abstract approach and it was so fun!  I love painting wet on wet when I can.  I think my favorite paintings are the ones that look the most fluid.

So are you abstract flower kind of person- or a realistic flower kind of person?  I think I'm somewhere in between :)

Photos of the Week

Few things are more beautiful to me than how the world looks (and smells) right after it rains, and by the world, I mean Utah.  It hardly ever rains here so when it does, I notice the small things like............... water drops clinging to lilacs,

and reflections in puddles.  It's good stuff.  Don't miss it!
