I seem to be painting a lot of red geraniums lately, I think it's because of the red flowers against the green leaves that bring such intensity. I brought this geranium into my studio to paint but wanted the feel of being outside. I like to come up with my own ideas on how I want the settings. That's the fun of painting, even though sometimes you end up with a migraine. So much work can go into a painting, each stroke matters, the design matters, your thoughts matter but in the end it's what comes from your heart that matters.
