Work (not quite) In Process - Peony

Here is a work-in-process shot of the peony painting that I was working on this fall. If you are a Facebook fan you may remember me mentioning it there. In particular I mentioned how it always seemed to rain the days I was painting it... maybe the flowers needed water?

I wonder if I worked on it now it would snow? I may have to test that theory soon. My children desperately want some snow to play in. Me - not so much - but I'll do almost anything for my kids.

The reason the title of this post is "Work (not quite) In Process" is because I had to set this painting aside in order to prepare for the juried show I am in in February. It was tough to set it aside. This is the second time I have done that. The first time I stopped working on it because I couldn't get my mind around the puzzle of petals. But this time I was in a flow and really making progress.

I am sharing this in process shot here because I want the accountability to go back to the painting once my work for the juried show is complete. If I know people are out there waiting for an update, I will be more inclined to pick up the brushes and continue putting this puzzle together.

Thanks for your support!

Jennifer our news stations are talking about all the snow you are getting over there and throughout Europe. My kids would love if you would share. I'd tell you to box some up and send it along, but somehow I think we'd just end up with a soggy box. :D For now the weather people are forecasting a possibility of snow for us the day after Christmas. We will have to see if that pans out or not.
