Working Table: New Collaboration (Laura)

Laura's working table

I must say I am a bit swoony about our NEW collaboration! I spent the most GORGEOUS day outside in the garden painting away. I had SO many ideas for this new series and couldn’t wait to get started and see where they ended up. I have three finished that are ready to be mailed off to Tina and I can hardly wait to see what she will do with them! Here they are…

Laura's beginning...

All of these paintings will be 5 x 7 inches and will be matted to fit a standard sized 8 x 10 inch frame. I decided to mask off part of the paper and did a mini painting of one of the flower buds from my garden. I jazzed up the background with patterns and rich color and left the rest white for Tina. Here is a close up…

For the next painting I thought chartreuse would be fun for the background as there isn’t tons of color in the garden right now. I have always loved this color with pink and decided to try it out. What do you think Tina will do with all that color?

For the last one I tried something new and painted the background blue and outlined it with a dark inky blue.

Like I said, I am quite happy with these new paintings and can’t wait to see them finished. You will be able to find them in our SHOP soon! YEA!

Cheery Smiles your way…Laura

  1. Laura- got these in the mail and am ready to start working. I am thinking of some photo transfers of my garden possibly. I like this challenge and will post some updates as I go.
