Sometimes I wonder why I keep painting flowers, and then I think of what Georgia O’Keeffe said:
“I hate flowers – I paint them because they’re cheaper than models and they don’t move.”
While I don’t exactly hate flowers, she had a point. It’s much easier to find flowers to paint than people, they are certainly easier to deal with, and you don’t have to pay them. All of that is true. They are excellent studies for the mechanics of painting watercolors. And a bonus, they are colorful. So I paint flowers. And this spring, they are absolutely everywhere. Enjoy.
