Sunday in the Studio

UncategorizedBrooke O'Connell2 Comments

It's a bit gloomy here today, so instead of being outside I have been organizing my studio space and finishing up a new painting.

I've hung one of my grandmother's paintings above my desk.  I love love love this painting and feel like the heron watches over me as I work.  I also decided to display my horse paintings by stringing them up with clothespins.

This way I can take a look at this series as I go.

Here's what's been on my desk today:

Keeping with my horse and flowers theme, here's one with lilies of the valley.  My idea for this series has been to paint horses with different types of flowers.  I have been having fun playing with the scale and size of the flowers.  I can envision these horses being fairy horses, existing in different gardens among the fairies.  Must be the Irish coming out of me :)

Here's the latest finished piece:

Have a great weekend. B
