A bit of midwinter color

Wow. I've just noticed something. I started this blog thinking I'd be using a lot of images rather than words, and I was under the impression that I had put a lot of images in it since starting out in September, but I've just looked back and counted a grand total of eight images of paintings or drawings. Nowhere near as many as I thought. 

So, before we all (or especially I) get buried under too many words--and there are plenty more of those!--how about another image or two. I don't even know when I drew these dahlias, actually...they're not dahlias, they are gerbera daisies that I bought back in the fall (October? November?) to brighten up our dining room table. (Well, really, I bought the gerbera daisies because I felt like buying some gerbera daisies for myself, but at least I decided to share them.) And I did this drawing when I wanted to play with color and not get tied up in knots about painting styles and composition and all those things that being in a painting class causes me to fuss about. Really I just wanted to have some fun. Fun with a pen and some watercolor crayons, and of course a brush and some water. And some gerbera daisies.
