Pretty soon I'll have to buy flowers at the florist and paint them inside :crying: So today I decided to go out and celebrate the end of the gardening season. I have a lot of fun doing those small 6x8 florals so I thought I'd increase my fun by painting a 18x24...more challenging than fun I think LOL. First the painting then 2 details....

Celebrating The Autumn Garden
Stretched canvas


Detail1 showing brushwork....


Detail 2 showing all that goopy, gritty stuff I like to mix in....

Hi Jan,
Now that's the kind of painting you need hanging on a wall on a dull winter's day, it will light up the whole room!

Oh my goodness sooo many nice comments!!! Thank you one and all! Color and a happy feeling are what most people cpmment on when they see my my work, and that makes me well....happy :D there's enough unhappiness in the world already, so if a little well placed color makes people feel happy I'm all for it!!

Les...I will try to do a WIP soon!
