Let’s consider flowers…
I’m participating in A Ladies’ Night Out with Heart, presented by Mercy Cardiovascular Services, Tuesday, February 12, from 6-8pm. I’ll be painting a large watercolor floral “mash-up” while the event takes place. It will be one of the items raffled.
Last night I was practicing painting various favorites of mine. What flowers do you think should I incorporate? Agapanthus, hydrangea, ranunculus, sunflowers….? I have never met a flower I didn’t like.
This practice painting was 9 x 12. The night of the event I’ll be painting an 18 x 24 watercolor – lots of room for lots of blooms.
Would love to learn your favorite flowers to plant or paint!
If you’re in the Joplin area and would like to attend, you can find additional information at mercy.net/LadiesNight
This event benefits Rapha House, an organization helping women and children victimized by sex trafficking.
My favorite flowers are birds of paradise and hydraganas!
…I owe you a hydrangea! Remind me to show you my abstract Bird of Paradise acrylic painting.
I love bearded iris and sweet peas. Beautiful work, Lori.
Ooh Geri – those are nice!
I love lilacs, daffodils butterfly bushes, hydrangeas. You are amazing and love your painting.
I adore all those flowers as well. Planted my first butterfly bush last year!
Never met a flower i didn’t love!!! Your painting is beautiful as always. jan
You and me both! You’re the best!
One of my favorites is the tiger lily. I could see the top left red flower mixing in with some purple and yellow flowers for a beautiful bouquet. But the I am the color-blind one, so my suggestions may be way off. LoL
You’re right! A tiger lily would be perfect! Thank you!
Website is looking good, my friend. Well done. Look how far you’ve come from that first challenge. *Jo*

And I am a fan of Day Lillies. So many colors and variations, so hopeful.
I love day Lillies as well. We had beautiful gardens of them when I was a child.
The Wheat Weaver earring should arrive today via UPS. They appear to me to have the movement of a flower in the breeze to me. Perhaps an idea for your watercolor?
Love it. Always looking for new ideas.
