I know I missed a day posting, so, since these two paintings have such a similar theme, I won’t wait to post one tomorrow. Call it extra credit? Or balancing out my karma. Whatever. I painted the mason jar study first, and was so interested by the color and texture of the leaves, I decided to do a more detailed study of the leaf of the white sage as well.
Like painting the Flat top Buckwheat, I am interested in painting the native plants around the area. My family has a long history tied to the flora and fauna of this countryside, and drawing these plants is sort of a way for me to understand that history better. More stories to come on that subject later.
