The Carnation's Caper by Lavina Marie Verdolaga
The Carnation's Caper
Watercolor on paper
29.7 x 21.0 cm

This is one of my favorite paintings from the exhibit. I'm particularly proud of the way I painted the background; I was experimenting with gradients, and I thought a merging (interchanging?) effect would make a nice change from my usual background, i.e. emptiness haha. This is also the painting I placed on my calling card.

The card is quite simple compared to other artists' calling cards, but it's good enough I think. Funny thing, I designed and had my cards printed before I purchased a domain for this site, so the info on the card is rather outdated. It's okay though; I'm going to update the design sooner or later, once I'm out of cards. 

On an unrelated note, it's almost Christmas, yay! I've always wanted to paint something for this specific season, but I never find the discipline to. :)) I should really change that attitude of mine, and force myself to get into the 'mood' to paint - and actually finish. I have tons of paintings pending right now, it's a tad irksome. :\ But do expect updates soon; a product review, in particular. It's gonna be - wait for it...
