Party Favor

I was at the same party as Kelley the other night and this is my version of the sweet little party favor our hostess with the mostest, Sally Dean made for each of us. I added some lobelia and I must find my tube of Grumbacher Thalo Red Rose because, dang, I couldn't get that shade of purple-y blue. Next time.

I appreciate your resourcefulness in using fresh flowers upon receiving them, and not procrastinating about painting them.
I'm guilty of letting possible subject matter slip through my fingers too many times in the past.
Thanks for the wake up call...and a lovely painting!

Very pretty!

Kelley Carey MacDonald said...

This looks great, Mar. I left it just 'as is' but I noticed Sally gave each of us different flowers.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog! I am also a fan of Virginia Vaughn-another Texas painter as well as Carol Marine. I love the boldness of your color and also the painterly manner-something I keep aspiring to!

Thanks for your visit-
Sea Bright is further north- near the beginning of the Penninsula that makes up the coastline. Have you heard of Sandy Hook, NJ? SB is the next town South.
I am sure that I have commented before, though it has been a while, that I love your use of color, and your brushwork.
I love the way I can see the light in this latest little piece of yours, and I love the intensity of the color.

Mary, I haven't visited your blog in a while and I see you have been producing some really lovely work. This one is super. I especially like that deep saturated yellow back cloth. To have red, yellow and blue and for it all to harmonize is fantastic!

Wow, I love this little gem of a painting! I know what you mean about Thalo Red Rose...for hot pinks, too. Thanks for signing up for my newsletter Mary. said...

This is a very nice painting, Mary. I like the shape and color arrangement.
