The series of 5″x5″ oil paintings continues. Delightful to paint in series, which can either stop or continue, as the fancy dictates.

This small oil, 5″x5″, is the first of a series of small paintings for a spring show. All of the paintings in this group of 16 are 5″x5″. Other groups are also of small flower paintings, one group only 4″x4″. All should show up here soon!

Rhododendron

Spring hikes through the mountains of West Virginia will usually discover large stands of rhododendrons like this one. They are a fine sight, though sometimes overwhelming in their size and strength. this is another in the series of small watercolors painted to benefit the Kump Education Center in Elkins WVA.

Sometimes one kind of flower takes over my imagination. This happens most often in the spring, and tulips are often the first and brightest omen of things to come.

This long and narrow watercolor is 7″ x 28″.

Watercolor

22″ x 30″

Watercolor paper at 22″ x 30″ is easy enough to find online. But larger sizes are difficult to locate, and it looks as though the only solution is to use a roll that comes in 10′ lengths. That ought to be big enough, at least!

So many flowers, so little summer. I'm painting all day, but more and more flowers need to be painted. A wonderful complaint to have, that's for sure!

So many flowers, so little summer! With a big show coming up, I’m painting all day and all evening. That’s a pretty nice complaint to have, isn’t it?
