I wish I knew what to call these. Draintings? Prawings? These drawing/paintings are speaking a language I just take down the best way I can, learning vocabulary and syntax as I go.

Oh but autumn and flowers have ways of surprising us...
These continue to be stunning, I especially love that white flower in the third one which is in fact mostly pale green but in being pale green succeeds in being intensely white.

Draintings and Prawings: no! Something with wings would be fine, but nothing drain-ish!
I agree with Beth: they have vigor and the energy that runs through creation. The "force that through the green fuse drives the flower" is in those wilding, free marks.

Flower power! That's what i call it! With such gestural and confident strokes, these really work for me too :0)

Laura, I've been enjoying these all summer since you started posting them. It's interesting how the darker backgrounds change the feeling. But what I like most is the vigor of the line: it's full of the tremendous life inside growing things, and that's what seems absent in so much flower painting. They're like jazz!

'Course, it occurs to me, I'd also need a sun-soaked, elegant island to go with that, but then, you could paint me that, too...
