An indoor Landscape !

There are many things that inspire me and this little indoor landscape is something I'd love to base a painting round.
I got the table quite cheaply at an auction, loving it's Deco look. I was really after a large bookshelf to house some of my many books but came home with this instead. Excuse was it fitted in the car !

Lillies at a Window

I'm already trying to work on this painting but don't know what to do with it, where to put the next brushstroke. The usual story !!

But I love these orchids and I'm hoping I manage to keep the plant alive long enough to be part of a still life. After all, the label says it only needs a thimbleful of water a week. Surely even I can manage that!! 


  1. I like the table/bookshelf. It's not always possible to find what you want at auction.You have to be open to new possibilities.
    The painting is looking good, dynamic. I like your free style and the colours too. Actually it reminds me of my own work.
    It's cold here I hope it's warmer there and the plant lives.
    Hope you have a inspiring, productive week

    1. Thankyou Jane - I love auctions but sometimes end up with weird china!

  2. Oh, I think you'll finish this nicely! It's a great beginning already. Thank you for sharing your process with us.

    Love the plant and its table, too.

    1. Hi Melinda. Thankyou for the comment. What is it about white flowers that are so appealing?

  3. Lillies by the window look to me like it knows where it's going. Beautiful. That's a great find, your bookcase table.
    I remember when I first saw those orchards years ago, they were so expensive. Now I can afford them, I've had one flowering in the house for months. Just need to work out how to make it flower again next season because I didn't get around to painting it this year.

  4. You mean it doesn't flower all the time Robyn? Oh no. I hoped it would keep going. I'll need to google how to look after it. And yes, they are so much cheaper now.

  5. I really like to read.Hope to learn a lot and have a nice experience here! my best regards guys!

  6. Nice way to decorate your walls. I have never done that. My effort to beautify the walls in my house was to order big-
    sized canvas prints from wahooart.com, from images of western art. I use the same angel motifs in all of the rooms
    painted by different painters, such as this one by very interesting English artist Stanley Spencer, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-

  7. Thanks for the link to that painting. Stanley Spencer painted some very interesting works.
