More mugwort!

Yesterday I worked on the mugwort design for the next mug and finished it this morning. I am getting better at doing this sort of design–this one went very quickly. Only the cleanup took a while, because I for some reason decided to put in a purple background. Not a good idea–so I painstakingly removed it. Took me over an hour. Now I know–no backgrounds! Just plain white looks best with these mini paintings. The one thing I have to resist with these is my tendency to be perfectionist. Is there a particular witching herb you would like to see me do next? I’ve been thinking of doing poppy next just because of the fun of painting brightly colored flowers, but if you have suggestions, post them in the comments.

Meanwhile, I hope that today I will be going to the ocean to walk and take photos for paintings.
