My Next Project :D

Photobucket

UPDATE:  This gorgeous photo is from my new favorite blog, White on Rice Couple.
Check out the post here


I have had this lovely photo in my project file for quite some time.  I probably filched it from someone's blog.  If this is your image please let me know, and I will post a link!  I started an 8" X 10" painting of it Monday (oil on canvas), and it should take me several weeks to paint it.

What do you think:  Is it a good choice?

I will not have time to paint today because I am running errands and having lunch with my mother and grandmother.  What are your plans for today?

I will catch-up with your blogs this evening.

Until next time...

Blessings!

  2. Oh, yes, that will be beautiful!

    Today? Well, it is the last day of a meeting for My Honey here in Ft. Lauderdale so tomorrow we will be on the road again. I'm looking forward to a romantic dinner for two tonight.

  4. hi Ricki Jill, A beautiful image. Perfect for a painting project. Love the color of the old jar with the lovely colors of the flowers. We've had our weekend planned for some time. It is a celebration of Father's Day and my grandson's birthday. It was going to be either here or a get together at the beach. Guess where I'm going to meet up with all the family? "Beach Trip"! No complaints from me. Today I'm packing.……Hope your weekend is lovely.

  7. Very Pretty image. I can't wait to see how you reinterpret it onto canvas!

    Today is library day, I take the girls every wendsday. Until then I'll get some work done in the studio and then make dinner. In other words nothing over the top but a nice day.

  10. this will be amazing, I just know it, I have been shopping for new glasses, walking in the sunshine and have lunch with friends, I cannot wait to see this completed, its not my photo but I knew it was familiar, I painted from this very photo a few months back, and I found it on google, I have never posted my painting or my version of this photo though, what a coincidence, great minds think alike!!!!I did mine in watercolor, I can't wait to see yours in oils,

  11. It's beautiful, Ricki Jill! I love it!! In fact, I'd love a painting like that for my own home...I just need to get some canvas and paints and start practicing. I haven't painted since my college art classes. How sad is that? And I loved it so much! *sigh*
    Hope you have a great day and enjoy your lunch with your mother and grandmother :)

  12. Hey Lady, as usual you have picked a gorgeous subject! I am crazy about blue jars, and pink roses! Today, well I need to clean, and put away groceries. I went to my favorite discount grocery store but got home too late to put it all away. Just a normal day. :) Enjoy your painting!

  25. I love Mason jars, and that blue one is fabulous! Today I am pondering how my baby just took the physics regents (and how it could've possibly been "EASY")

  27. I was just over at Lauries (In my dreams I see) she said you were working on an oil of this picture, I love that picture and can't wait to see it in oil, Lauries is in water color. Oh, I want to be able to paint in my next life...I'd like to be tall too!
