Posted on Sep 23, 2019 6:43 AM

Continuing to bring out zinnias from backgrounds started a day ago.
Some have possibilities and some ( that I really liked ) will get tossed.
Like this one.

Red Zinnias is pretty good.
Problem is ,when I take months off, I need to burn the first few ( warm ups) just to get the flow going.

Let dry overnight.

Aug 7 next day.
Finished August Heleniums and found some "starts" in a pile left from last winter.
They might be paintings and maybe not.
Its fun to try to find the picture on these pages.

Continuing with y daily studio time.
I spend an hour in the studio working, sometimes it's a hit sometimes a miss.
Yesterday I left 4 small painting starts of Poppies.
This morning I worked on three and one went up in flames the other two look pretty good
