Sketch of the Week (or not)

Dear Reader, I am afraid I owe you an apology.

I was supposed to have a sketch to show you this week, but between the heat, my back acting up, and a severe case of procrastination I have more work to do before I’m ready to show it to anyone. Instead I will post this picture of a recent wall painting I did with a dear friend of mine in her new apartment:

FlowersOnTheWallMontage

The overall design is based on a sketch I did which we then worked out the details on together. The painting itself is a collaboration, with her painting the stem and leaves and me painting all but three of the flowers. It took us seven hours from first to last brush stroke, but it was well-worth it!
