Potted Garden

After what was meant to be a “quick trip” to Lowe’s for only grass seed, I came home with an assortment of beautiful flowers, plants, potting soil, rocks and pots to decorate the front porch adorn the front door. Inspired by the colors and textures, I pulled out my watercolors to attempt to recreate these flowers in a carefree way. Before I knew it, I was cutting paper and overdoing it. My daughter, Chloe informed me that she liked the painting in its first stages…I agree. Oh well, you can’t like everything you do artistically. I think back to that day I went to Lowe’s and still love the time spent choosing the assortment, and enjoy the living arrangements of flowers and plants that I created…that still makes me smile.
