Lily Pads - October 1, 2009

"There is only one real sin and that is to persuade oneself that the second best is anything but second best."

Doris Lessing

2.5" x 3.5" Watercolor & Gouache

I had the best time this morning! Vikie Lea emailed me about this wonderful artist, so I just had to go see. Karrie Evenson is another artist who loves color and has a wonderful style, like Lindy Gruger Hanson, who I have been following for a while. When I spend time looking at art like theirs, I am always inspired to take a few more chances and get a little more bold with my art. They just seem to be having so much fun! Thanks, Vickie!

About Doris Lessing
Doris Lessing, the iconoclastic British author who writes both realistic literary novels and humanist science fiction, is best known for her book The Golden Notebook, an experimental novel about a blocked writer who jots down her thoughts in a set of notebooks. She was born in Iran in 1919 to British parents and grew up in Rhodesia. She went through a communist phase but became disenchanted after witnessing the reality in the Soviet Union. She was awarded a Noble Prize in Literature in 2007. She has been married twice and has three children.

Thanks Beth for mentioning my art! I love Karrie's art too and yours of course. Did I tell you I have the card of your Barbados Beach Shack painting on my window sill above my art table? It inspires me everyday! So colorful and fun!

Thanks, Lindy! I love sharing my favorite artists with other people, as you do. I have your card by my computer. I enjoy it a lot, too!
