Art of the Day: Wednesday March 18, 2009

Fuchsia from my Patio

- by Lori Rase Hall

This week's theme: Flower Of The Month

It's that time of year when we are being made aware, that yes, spring will be arriving again. Because for most of us it can't arrive too soon, this week's Art Of The Day selections are from some of the past EBSQ Flower Of The Month shows.

The current FOTM is the Cylcamen. If you would like to see the entries in, or perhaps enter, this or any of the other EBSQ shows for March, please visit the EBSQ Shows page. A list of all the upcoming shows with short descriptions can be found here as well.

Art: Fuchsia from my Patio by Artist Lori Rase Hall
I used coldpress watercolor paper and mostly Winsor & Newton watercolors. I really tried hard just to let the paint flow and be fresh and not overworked. These are two blooms I picked of my fuchsia plant that I babysit on my back patio. I live in Sacramento, CA where in the summer it can get to be 100 + degrees. (Fuchsias love cool wet climates---so I have to really watch them!) I picked these two blooms just so I could paint them. They are such cool flowers. They remind me of a ballerina's skirt. I have always had a special love for them.
