Another May Painting

In my effort to do a painting every day in May,
as proposed by Dana on her blog,
I've come through six days out of eleven!
Here's today's effort:

This is an orchid I brought as a house gift to a friend a couple of years ago.
It was so pretty I took a photo, and just now pulled it out.

I dug out this little set of Windsor Newton watercolors
 I got  about forty years ago. I think it was called a "field" set, easy to carry when painting outside. 

It's interesting to me that I used to draw and paint frequently as a young woman,
but when my daughter was born, I became intrigued with fabric used as an art medium.
Also, my 'alone time' was lessened by the business of motherhood 
and my concentration definitely shifted. 

It's a bit of synchronicity that I responded to Dana's challenge 
when I saw it on Anne's blog. I'm enjoying making these little paintings and am thinking 
of doing more - definitely, at least, for the rest of May!! 

Hope your week has been a good one!!

Thanks for stopping by!
