Went to the Wednesday Santa Monica Farmers Market again since those snapdragons were so inspiring…They wanted $15 for a small arranged bunch that had some stock, a sunflower, etc….I wish I felt like no biggie, but I decided I had enough stuff to paint without splurging…and then I found a funny bunch for $2. I liked the little pink carnations and just the hodge-podgey-ness of it…and the price. My former step mother used to get a big kick out of a guy who sat outside Grand Central Station in NYC and kept repeating endlessly “dolla bunch”–we won’t say how many decades ago. Anyway, the afternoon was seriously getting away from me but thanks to the 30 day challenge I finally just had at it…and I’m glad I did. Something new is going on in my work…that I’m kind of diggin’. Now if someone will buy a painting, I can feel better about all the money I spent on paints and boards in the last 24 hours…the flowers are on me.
