Can you see the sweat on my brow?
I wanted to do something challenging this month for The Early Mercantile Gathering. So while flipping through my old books, outside at my little fold-up table, with Marshall pulling out freshly planted herbs, I saw a painting that I thought I'd try and emulate. The original was one called, "A Basket of Flowers" from 1830.
About three hours into this painting, I almost decided to give up. But I'm glad I didn't. I really like the way it turned out. Not sure how many of this type i'll do, but here she is nonetheless.
What do you think?
I just posted this on the Early Works Mercantile site. You can find it by clicking the link to the right. There are so many nice things there this month! Go take a peek!!
Personally, I like this painting as much as Marshall liked my rosemary plant. Let's just say, the only thing left is the pot and its shiny little price tag.
