I never know where I’ll find inspiration.
The last Princess & the Pea assignment was to create 20 different compositions and then pick one to paint using a credit card. I was stuck – none of my compositions appealed to me. Well . . . truthfully there were a few that I liked . . . I just didn’t think I could paint them with a credit card . . .
Looking through my stash of paper I came across this unfinished watercolor from Jan 30, 1989.
The date of the class I took was on the back (I remember I dropped out because watercolor was too difficult) The paper tape that held the wet paper on the board was still there.
I was trying to paint a lemon.
Inspiration! A giant pea! (aka lemon). There was my composition for the Princess and her PEA! (click if you forgot how my credit card painting turned out)
Moral of my tale: Never throw anything away and
some fruit should be a vegetable.
