Work comes first


The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.”
- Vidal Sassoon (1928-2012),
Camellia
9x12

I started a state flower series a while back and then got off track doing other things and never finished. I am easily distracted because everything seems like a possible painting to me. The ideas buzz around in my head like wild bees. Today I ran across this floral painting of a Camellia the State Flower of Alabama. Like the quote at the top of the page: The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary. It is summer and I love to paint flowers in watercolor in the summer so I am going to start the series again.
