Thanks Liz, as always, for all the kind words. After too long a break I approached this one more boldly than I would have in the past and it turned out better than I expected. I'll post a pic when it dries.

Great to see you back on the velvet again.
This is what you do best!
Hope to see more new works.

Are you going to sell at Festiki?

Wow, this is beautiful. I really like how the flowers had a little more color in the background, but in a subtle way.
Also glad to see you're back on velvets, do more !!

HOOOOWWWLLL!!! Robb's back! The painting looks beautiful. I admire the fortitude that it takes to re-do a piece of art until it is just PERFECT.

Robb, that's the Mexican Bird of Paradise (Caesalpinia mexicana). Beautiful flower that grows well in the desert. I picked one from my yard last week and used it to grace the dinner table.



(Edit - Chili, Cheese, Fritos, and sour cream )

I was in shadows waiting for the moment to stand back in the light - well the light has arrived and I'm thrilled to be warmed again in the light of your velvet artwork, Mr. Hamel...

As others have said before my post its great to see you back and executing one of your great velvet paintings. I'll be waiting for a finished pic.

Rock-On!! G

Painting foliage is very difficult. If you try to put in every single leaf and petal, pretty soon you've got a mess.
Nice job on the impressionism. It's hard to know what to put in and what to leave out. (leave out..get it? haha)
