Another painted accepted in juried show


Whirl Flower  excl. color  border jpeg

Some paintings are a struggle, but this one was a lot of fun. I still feel a jolt of adrenaline whenever I look at it. 

The swirling petals were easy to paint, guiding the brush out from the center of the flower.

Drawing the circles bouncing up from the greenery, I held the brush perpendicular to the paper, just the very point of the brush on the paper. It felt as if the circles morphed into champagne bubbles with that fizzy sparkle. 

I have forgotten what animal hairs were used for this skillfully hand-made brush. We who are fortunate to have some original Keith Lebenzon brushes still mourn his passing.
