42 - Wild Prarie Rose
Wild Prarie Rose
Yes, I know I skipped 41. #41 was my very first watercolor, so please excuse I am not showing it. I'm pretty sure no one will. Most likely it will be destroyed for its own good.
The wild prarie rose is the state flower of North Dakota. This one was done in watercolor on 140lb paper. It is my second watercolor painting. I really kind of like how quickly a watercolor painting progress. An oil would take weeks or even months for me to complete. There is something freeing about a painting that can get over worked very quickly (I learned about over working on my first one).
I hadn't been doing much painting lately. It is a great feeling to have my heart back (and my head back) where they belong.
