I haven't updated on here recently and I think it's largely just because I tend to feel pretty tired by the time I get home from work and have no desire to spend any more time on the computer... or any time actually thinking about what to type up. Today however, I want to share my new artwork with you! My gallery is friends only though, sorry folks. It's mainly just to add a bit of protection from potential copyright theft/violation.

I did one painting last night that I completed before work this morning. It is a painting of three tulips:Tulip painting

I then did one for a co-worker in between calls at work...which is potentially something that we may or may not actually be allowed to do. Either way, it turned out well and I took a picture of it before handing it over: Lotus Flower

Lastly, I did one that I absolutely love and think turned out the best of all three (I think it also scanned the best): Iris

All in all, I'd have to say that it was a very creative and productive day for me! I am very pleased not only with the paintings themselves but the fact that I'm actually seeing a bit of improvement between the first one that I did and the last one. I still need to loosen up a bit with the colour but that will take some time and more practice. I've actually also been commissioned to do a painting for another co-worker and we've discussed what she wants so I'll just have to quote her a price and get my butt in gear! It will be the first painting that I've actually sold!

Awesome! The Iris one is my fav of the 3 you did too. Who is commissioning your work? :)
One of the women at work that I don't think you actually know. She's not in the call centre, she's one of the government employees.
I definitely like the iris best. I'm sure one of my profs would have said there was a vagina in the tulip. But I think he wants to see vaginas in flowers.
I don't think your prof is the only one! I think there's a whole movement of people trying to see vaginas in everything.
Wow. I didn't notice any vaginas at all. Does that make me an anti-sex, bad feminist? :)

The iris is really nice, but I think I actually liked the tulips best. It just made me think, "spring!" in a way the other 2 didn't.
I didn't see vaginas either, just tulips! hehe

I'm glad that you liked the tulips. They were the first I painted and I agree they really do feel "springy"!! I think they have more of a subtle beauty to them whereas the Iris is really showy, thus making them both beautiful in very different ways. :D

Thanks for the feedback. It's always nice to know what others think and I just love getting different viewpoints!!
