A deep red rose – a painting a day


http://www.etsy.com/shop/lemonaday    4.5″x6″ 11cm x 15cm watercolour on heavyweight rag paper

Ho hum I could stuff my face with chocolate or do my painting for the day; finish the Killer Sudoku or do a painting for the day; have a cup of tea or do my painting for the day; plant out the species clematis that are eking out a living in pots and reproaching me daily with their slender new growth or do my painting for today; go and encourage concreting maestro on final stretch of the shed base or do my painting for the day…. What about make a cup of tea and eat a small piece of chocolate…all the second batch of hot cross buns have gone …and THINK about the subject of the painting for the day….

Tonight’s meal is sorted, cold meat left from yesterday….I was persuaded to a small goose going cheap by the gamekeepers wife as an alternative to turkey for Easter, only once I got it defrosted did I realise it was a wild goose, it had been obviously been shot. It took a long time to cook but was very tasty and had a lot less fat than a farm goose.

First rhubarb of the year came from my brother in-law in Essex, he is not a fan of the stuff but will grow it; he is near the sea so it’s spring there a little sooner. I think I might paint the rhubarb.

Tried the rhubarb did not work so here is a rose for today, sometimes it is easy to paint the familiar, the rhubarb was rumpled and difficult to define.
