Blue Bonnets and Striped Napkin
This one, not so weird....I kept it to all blue and some form of blue as much as possible. It was a good color exercise and I also kept the paint relatively fresh. What I want from the flowers is a particular energy separate from prettiness. I know this is possible, because I have seen it done: Van Gogh, Alice Neel, Redon, to name three, I know there are more...also, Jane Freilicher, also Wayne Thiebaud, who did plastic ones that knock you out.
