I was worried that the time I had to paint wouldn’t be enough, but it was! So I’m very happy that I will have three paintings for the upcoming Mini Things exhibition.

I am aiming for a fourth now. It doesn’t happen very often that I’ll have flowers which group together so well. I normally paint in a random way.
Seeing as continuity is with me this time, it would be nice to have all four flowers together.

I have though, taken on extra responsibilites at the gallery (more on that soon) and I’m not sure how much that is going to affect my time to paint. I will though be working to ensure it doesn’t create too big an impact.
To that end I have begun the fourth flower portrait ‘Sunday’s Serenity’

I will have to spend some time getting the backings on the flowers, and hangers and fixing my signature. I only realised as I was taking photos that ‘Margeruite’ has my signature on the side so it doesn’t interfer with the main image and the other two have my signature front facing. Tsk Tsk on me! I’m so used to painting these flowers on canvasboard that I haven’t fully adjusted to having edges again. So I must fix that as consistancy is very important in these things.
I am very optimistic. This week is my painting week and if I managed to finish a painting with just a few hours each night, with a few days as well I should be just fine!
It’s just an ideal. It’s very nice though, when occassionally your ideals do become realities.
Until next week I wish you all a week full of beauty, hope and many an inspired moment.
Tikarma. Xx

This flower is being kept back along with ‘ Marguerite ‘ for an upcoming exhibition at the Stationmaster’s Gallery called Mini Things.
Obviously being small, the flowers are very apt for an exhibition about small things. 🙂 It’s nice as well to have a chance at least once a year to try to include some of my work in the gallery.
I am hoping desperately to have all five flowers finished in time, but at the very least I should have three ready. I have 2 weeks. I can do this!

I do have the third flower ‘Serenity White’ half-finished.

For now I feel optimistic even though it’s not my painting week this week, I still have the nights and I hope the couple of hours I have each night will be enough. A few hours over the week does add up.

Until next week.
I wish you all a week filled with hope, beauty and a little smile. 🙂

Tikarma.
