I have referenced this same flower for an acrylic painting and also a graphite value study. I think that practice helped me when painting it this time with watercolor and gouache. The pencil work is a quote by Ai Weiwei: "But I think that everybody has to do things their own way."

Regarding how I mounted this work. So yeah, I used masking tape. I've always loved masking tape. And maybe it won't "last" for a hundred years ... or maybe it will. But what of it? It's never not now.

This is the demo painting I made while teaching a private still life oil painting session in my studio. How did I get the rose to stand erect like that? A flower frog! My favorite new thing for flower arranging. This was a very challenging composition and I'm really so proud of the three humans who were painting with me for sticking with it ... dealing with the complexity of the mug's handle, the nuances of the two glass objects, and of course the flowers and other elements. No one gave up and everyone left resolved to practice soon and often. Music to my ears.

This is the demo painting I made while teaching a private lesson to a group of three wonderful people. Once the portrait was finished-ish, I decided to add the foliage sprouting her left eye, inspired by @paulabonet . I dig it.

It makes me feel ... it makes me feel like ... it makes me feel like a na-tu-ral wo-mannnnnn.

I painted this in reaction to the bombs that our administration dropped on Syria on April 7th. An administration that arguably wanted to posture itself as intolerant of the chemical attacks made on its innocent people by monstrous Assad.

Is that our posture? What is our policy?

How does our posture relate to a policy to ban entry of Syrian refugees fleeing from the horrors of bombs, guns and now chemicals of Assad? Where do the people of Syria find refuge as they are surrounded by death?

This is the demo painting I made while providing a private session for Cheryl, a wonderful human who comes to paint with me monthly. What a gem she is. I used a reference of a female Asian subject from W magazine for this work. I enjoyed adding strokes of oil pastels as final touches for this work ... a brand new something in my life that I'm dazzled about.

This is the demo painting I made while teaching a private session for Scott, a human who comes to paint with me once a month. We had a lot of fun practicing the art of not painting the shit out of the subject but just enough loose strokes to suggest the subject rather than illustrate every millimeter of it. And oh yeah, we listened to the genius of late Amy during the process:

Meet you downstairs in the bar and hurt,
Your rolled-up sleeves in your skull t-shirt,
You say, "What did you do with him today?"
And sniffed me out like I was Tanqueray ...

This is my demo painting from a private oil painting session I taught in the studio. The subject is a friend of the person who was painting with me. A handsome Latino hunk. El Guapo for short.

I referenced a photo by @narcissusholmes of @anjaphillips for this work. Practicing the task of bringing in color with a b&w reference and my efforts with the whole "there, not there" thing.

This is one of the demo paintings I started yesterday while teaching a private lesson. I finished it today. The photo I referenced is one that a person named Chris had shared with me when I was teaching her a private session. She had found it on Pinterest. It was one of those references we both admired and has been in my queue to paint for a while. So glad I did.
