Paint Party Friday....going black and white....


Hi Everyone....

I am thrilled you popped in to see me today....I have been busy this week with all sorts of projects....I am currently working a lot in black and white and was inspired to create this piece....inspired by one of my favorite herbs in the garden...one that you never have to replant because every year it sows itself....for the next year....I get it throughout my whole garden and before I till and plant everything else....I wait till it is big enough for me to pick and I freeze it for use in all of my favorite dishes.....

do you know what this herb is?

I am sharing this piece with all of my talented friends over at Paint Party Friday...

I really have no idea where the entire week went....but it was a wonderful and creative week....

Happy Friday and Happy Creating.....

Hi Diana. What a great idea. B/W for PPF. Excellent work. I do believe it's Dill. I have that in my garden. Love it and use it. Nice work. Happy PPF!

I thought it was a rhododendron hehhe I'm quite lost I think but the B&W looks great.

Jenn said...

Love the black and white AND the detail!! I'm going to have to check back to find out what herb it is!! :)

Heather said...

That is a beautiful black and white painting! Love this. I do not know what it is because I hate to admit I am not the best cook. But I am going to start!

I'm clueless as to what it is. But I love how it looks in black and white. :)

Is it Dill
I know this week went so fast for me too. Lots of fun this last weekend for me and I am now back in the swing of the painting again after a weekend break.
I like black and white too. It is so minimalist - which I like it feels so clean and direct ...you wouldn't know it by my thick textured paintings would you

this is gorgeous. is it a painting on canvas or a digital piece that looks like canvas? the lines are so perfectly defined and clear that i just wondered-if its hand painted you have an incredibly steady hand! anyway, its a stunning piece even though i'm pretty clueless about herbs!

Beautiful black and white image, love the silhouette of dill!

Kokopelli said...

Is this really called "Dill" in English, too? How funny, as it's the same word in German. Happy PPF and great work in b/w!

J'adore le fenouil... Que ce soit en bulbe ou en fleur... Je cueille beaucoup de fenouil sauvage...
J'aime beaucoup la forme esthétiques .de cette fleur... et tu l'as parfaitement bien peint.
Je t'envoie tout plein d'arômes anisés... et de gros bisous

Netty said...

wow it looks fabulous in black and white Diana. Happy PPF, Annette x

I do not know the name of the plant, but it is the same that I painted last week on green and yellow spots. I like your composition in black and white.

Wonderful B/W work. after viewing working with color for long and seeing B/W work is a treat. Thank you for sharing!

Love the silhouette! It's gorgeous, and seems French somehow.

Molly said...

The starkness of the black-and-white is stunning. I love the beauty of its simplicity!

I thought it was maybe parsley, allowed to bloom so it would reseed. But now, I think I'll agree with the others about it being dill! Whatever it is, it's beautiful and SO dramatic in black and white!

Petrea Hansen-Adamidis said...

I really like this effect- it's dill I believe. Happy PPF!

WrightStuff said...

Soft and fluffy Dill perfectly captured!

This would make a great print on notebooks and things. Gorgeous.

NatashaMay said...

This looks fantastic! I love contrasting as it is anyway. And I can't tell a weed from a flower so no guesses from me. :)
