Today's Gift ~ Watercolour, Size 9x11.5 inches, March 6, 2014
By Laura Leeder
I almost always include a lace tablecloth in my still-life paintings. In this case I chose to omit the lace as I wanted to challenge myself to create a more contemporary feeling. I also wanted to place the focus entirely on the beautiful velvety red roses and green satin bow. This shade of green is fresh and clean and reminds me of spring. Red roses are always a favorite to give and they can be enjoyed just as easily in early spring as they can through-out any of the season's of our lives.
"Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift!"
Have a great weekend and remember to enjoy each day's gifts!
