    If you haven't seen the two-DVD set, "The Impressionists", you don't know what you're missing!

    I rented it from Netflix and absolutely loved it. It is an enactment of the lives of Monet, Renoir, Manet, Cezanne, Degas, and other Impressionist painters living at that time around Paris. Fascinating and eye-opening!

This is a day in the life of my amaryllis plant. I painted this while it was in the budding stage. I loved seeing the colors emerging from the buds, which seemed to grow and open even as I was painting. It’s amazing how quickly that happens once it starts. The morning after painting this, there were already flowers.

The Golden Airbrush paints behave very much like watercolor and gouache. “Airbrush” is such restrictive terminology for these versatile paints. They are great to use with brushes, and also with calligraphy pens. They can also be used on canvas, boards, or other supports you’d use for acrylics, and varnished and framed without glass like oils. I’ve just started working with them in the past six months or so. I’m enjoying exploring their capabilities!

It looks like your amaryllis plant was a huge success this year, Jamie! Did you paint multiple viewpoints in this one, or do you have more than one plant?

Michelle, I did multiple viewpoints. I only had one plant, but I think next year I’ll get some more. They are so gorgeous!
