Abstract-ish Calla

Beth of Smiling to Life / BetulaWorldpress shares the most amazing images on a daily basis, and her work always inspires me. She graciously gave me permission to try and render one of her beautiful photos, which can be found at this link.   Her work is also for sale at this link, and I encourage you to visit her shop.   You’re sure to find something beautiful every single time.   Her florals in particular always move me, and sometimes I’m able to get a sense of them on the page.   Neocolors to the rescue once again!


The next two weeks are probably my busiest in the whole year, so I may be posting sporadically for awhile.   Hoping to catch up with all of you soon.   It’s Friday!   Are we dancing?   You bet!   Tailfeathers all a-twitch over here.  Peace.

  1. Once again the neos didn’t let you down – so vibrant and full of life! Indeed Beth takes glorious photos and I especially am amazed with her macro shots. Good luck the next few weeks, and have a terrific weekend, Laura!

  3. Lovely and graceful Laura – a nice burst of color for the Calla! I understand about being busy, been unable to spend time on my blog or visiting others – hope to catch up very soon. Have a great weekend.

      1. Getting there, thinking about it!!!!! Laura. I also ordered The Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain Starter Kit you recommended from Abe books in Britain, so maybe I’ll wait till it arrives.

  4. Don’t let the season “tax” you too much – glad to see you’re taking time out to paint. I love calla! I brought some seeds here to FL from PA and we have some already growing on the property – not in bloom yet, though. Your abstraction is super cool. Love that red!

    1. Thanks, C. I’m still drawing every day and trying to paint most days but not taking the time to blog so much now. I’m so glad you brought some flowers with you from PA. That’s really cool. We’ve never grown calla lilies but I bet they’d be beautiful! I hope you’ll be painting some too. 💚
