A Painting a Day #55 - Purple Petunia
Purple Petunia – 4"X4" acrylic on masonite.
Petunias are hardy annuals here in Alberta. People plant them bercause they last well into the fall. Although it doesn't show in the scan -I experimented by applying heat to the top coating of Liquitex varnish and got a lovely crackle finish. I must use this technique again. My impatience waiting for the varnish to dry paid off this time!
I started painting one 4"X4" miniature daily on May 1st 2015. After a near fatal drowning experience in 2013, I realized just how precious life is and I wondered why I was waiting to do what I loved most. I just wasn't finding the time.
It took a while to commit to it, but a year later, I decided I just had to make the time and I enrolled in some fine art acrylic painting classes. Under my teacher, Sharon Moore-Foster, I gained confidence and found my soul's voice through my paintings.
Now I am fully committed to expressing myself through my fine art by creating one miniature painting to mark each passing day – to leave my mark in this world.
