Saturday’s Painting 🌹

I wanted to do something similar to a Yvonne Coomber painting but not the same if that makes sense πŸ™„ I am very conscious that I want my own style then I can’t be accused of copying which is quite difficult. I suppose I’m trying to find my niche although John tells me I need to learn a lot more through doing different styles. πŸ€—

I thought painting would get easier the more I do. In one way it does regarding doing faces, but I seem to be my own worst critic wanting to do better and better and feeling frustrated when I don’t get something right.

I said to John that I was perhaps thinking like this because we have spent so much money on a printer and paper. His reply was , “That doesn’t matter, we can always use it to print our family’s photos” 😳

I know without doubt everything will come together, I feel it and if I feel it I can do it. I suppose it’s that old adage no pain no gain and writers trying to publish their work feel the pain. 😬

Then again I’ve only been painting two months lol so what is my problem? I know I’m just a wuss. πŸ™„ Harmony should return when I find my niche!

  1. Trying other styles, Elaine, is a little like trying on someone else’s outfit, just to see how you’d look in it and figure out how you’d tweak it to make it yours. Go ahead. Trying other styles helps you refine your own! πŸ˜‰ xoxoM

  2. Your flowers immediately reminded me of the children’s book Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney. Lovely.

  3. It’s beautiful, Elaine! It’s my second favorite flower painting. Very cheerful and lovely colors. In case you don’t remember, my fave flower painting was I think the second one you did, the larger, orange flowers. Love it!πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ’ž

  4. Truly beautiful. Your painting is coming along rather nicely. At some point, you will find yourself. I don’t think it’s any different than writing or taking photos. You will feel more relaxed about who you are ❀❀❀

      1. There was a time that I struggled. It’s not like I am set in stone or perfect, but I feel more comfortable with what I do. There is always room to grow, but you gain confidence πŸ™‚
