Best Mom ever!

When your mom brings you home a “Bouquet de fleurs”, this is my way of saying Thank You😍

I had no time for oil painting last night, so l grabbed my pastels instead and did a quick study! I captured some shapes, colors and the harmony of the flowers. What Nature has to offer is just beautiful!

I used oil pastels on strathmore paper, which gives just enough “texture” to my lines and my flat tint of colors.

This drawing is a work in progress so stay tuned to see the final piece.

À bientôt,

Marie

Seashell Fun Fact

Did you know that???

The turn of a snail’s shell is called a whorl. In 99 percent of all snail species, that whorl goes in a clockwise direction. Because they open to the right, they are also called “dextral”.

I checked a few of mine, like on the painting “Luster #3” featured here, and so far that’s right 😉

The opposite I find quite melancholic, since the shells opening to the left are named “sinistral”. And those little lefties have quite a tough life when it comes to mating. Discover by yourself with this fun article published on Mentalfloss:  “8 fascinating facts about seashells“, by Erin McCarthy.

Fun facts are fun to share! Have a great day!

A bientôt,

Marie
