The gazenia flowers in my garden...

And then some on a bottle...

Gazenias sure make a pretty picture, they are so cheery and bright! :)

Two Of A Kind

Just a fun post to show you how I have been playing around...

With shape and size...

While keeping the basic design intact.

So many bottles now have pairs that look similar...

But are not identical.

So what do we call this? Bottle cloning! :)

Out In The Garden

The last of the stills that had me preoccupied most of last month. Again an amagamation of random things at a certain moment in time.

So two leafy models from the garden, coupled with a jar and some peaches made up this one.

Somehow the camera doesn't capture the blues too well... but the warm colour of the peaches amidst the cool shades in the rest of the painting does make for an interesting combo.

Lilies On A Bottle

Spotted an unusual and very pretty variety of lily on a friend's balcony.

Even the leaves were wavy and curled up.

I knew there and then that this had to get on to a bottle.

Am now thinking of doing the same design in a shade of pink. Whaddaya think.... wouldn't that look as divine?

Ready For Breakfast

Another still, focussing on items that brighten up the breakfast table. Some juicy red apples, a creamer indicating coffee on the way, and fresh flowers.

And of course, the most important item (for me at least).... the morning newspaper! The day just doesn't start right without that.

Enjoyed playing around with the paint on this one, especially those places where the paint had to be applied real thick to form outlines. No wonder the flowers are my favourite part of the painting.

Been working on quite a few bottles lately. Look out for one in my next post. Till then, happy work week ahead (July being a month with the least holidays)!
