I found an old watercolor pad of Mom's so I tried a piece - this is about 8 X 10" in acrylics.
About 2 hours:
Needs some fixing up, but I don't hate it!

This is really nice - you have done a great job - very delicate looking flowers.

I love it. Even liked the under painting, but the finished piece is excellent. The crop is perfect for a macro floral, and the colors are delightful. One of your best, IMO.

Wonderful, old fashioned (as the flower) feel to this painting. It's really charming Barbara.

Lovely colours and flowing, sensual textures in this. It might be a sketch for an Edwardian wallpaper. Very good.

I really do like your work!

Oooh I love the difference in those two shots. I think I lack the skill (the genes?) to transform something like the former into something like the latter :)

Very delicate flowers - so pretty!

Wow - You are all so sweet! Thank you very much for your kind words.
Mom was more impressed with an old magazine I brought her so I did not leave it with her, but that's OK. You all made my day!:heart: I did more and I think it needs a fancy frame. I might like to paint flowers some day!:crossfingers:
