8x12 oil on canvas "Wild Verbena"
In the spring of each year wild verbena makes a bold statement all along the roads and fields all over Georgia. Sometimes I just have to pull over and just thank God for all the beauty He sets before us. I've tried many times to transplant wild verbena, but never been successful; the best I can do is try my best to capture the inspiration in paint.
Lesley came to paint with me this afternoon and we started on a seascape, but she had to leave early so I thought it might be best to put that one aside and wait until she can come back and we can pick up together where we left off. I worked most of the afternoon but was interrupted by yellow kitty again this evening. Yellow kitty was so very hungry and his little belly was all sunk in so I called Anna Mary to see if I could come get a cup of food. Some folks borrow sugar, not me... I borrow cat food. LOL After getting yellow kitty calmed down, I went back to painting and painted the wild verbena inspiration painting above. All in all it was a good day painting and I'm ready for day 20! Can you believe it!
