I did this recently for the Virtual Paintout - this months location is the Czech Republic. Had fun roaming the area, but nothing caught my attention until I found these fields of yellow flowers. I'm not sure what they are, but they seem to be located in only one area of the nation (centered around Prague) and nowhere else. When I saw the white wild rose against the yellow background, I knew I had to paint it.

If you haven't checked out the Virtual Paintout yet, click here (http://virtualpaintout.blogspot.com/) for a link to it. Any media, any skill set and all instructions are on the blogsite. Much thanks to Bill Guffey for this wonderful painting challenge.

This is acrylic on 9x12 canvas. Thanks for looking, hope you enjoy. - Nan

Beautiful Nancie! Looks like canola flowers. The Czech Republic yields about 880 tonnes of it a year...

This is lovely Nancie. The field looks like the Raps flowers we have in abundance in Germany. Beautiful against those white roses.
