Thought some bold, beautiful flowers might cheer me up! :D Thanks to 'our' Gayle/Gaykir for allowing me to use her photo :wave:

Not totally satisfied, but fear doing more harm than good if I keep muddling with it...:lol: any and all C&C welcome!

Great job of it! The photo was taken at a Buddhist Monastery in Vietnam. The gardens were simply incredible! Susan you did a wonderful job capturing those brilliant colors.

Thanks for the flowers - they are beautiful. I'm sitting in my office/studio watching the snow plows clear our driveways at 7 o'clock at night. They predicted a foot but we got about 5 or so inches.

Love the colors in your painting.

Susan, these flowers are indeed cheerful, with the promise of Spring!

Are these hibiscus (the "Rose of China"), which can bloom all year long? They are a great symbol of optimism and hardiness. A very good subject and so colorful - they really do lift the spirits! I love this painting! Thanks for the color and liveliness.
