Single White Bloom

“Single White Bloom” is for the Flower a Day Project. The flower was painted in oils in my 4 x 4 sketchbook. There’s something personal and maybe even romantic about a single stem. I think I like them better than a bouquet not just for a painting but on my kitchen table as well. *All […]

This particular sketch diary/journal is dedicated to everyday moments such as tea before […]
