This is the painting I started last week but didn't get to finish before leaving for my visit. I didn't know where I was going with it, and for a while, it felt like it was losing direction instead of gaining.
I had more progress photos but accidentally deleted them! What happened is the pretty watercolour roses were eventually smeared and then covered. Layers of paper were added. Paint was pushed through a stencil. And when I came back, I wanted to paint one of the many hummingbirds I got to see during my visit!
It says "Remember", because art is a memory, a feeling, an experience. Capture it!
Hello! I'm Melissa, and here you'll find some behind-the-scenes footage of an artful life. Won't you join me?
