Viv, it just gets better and better!!! Wow, beautiful work, Peeps!!

Mine is almost ready for the camera, but awaiting the sun. . .it rained hard all day today. . . Tomorrow, I am sure!! Remember, it is unusual, but meets the challenge!

Come on, Shar, we can do it!!

Re: July 2014 Plant Parade

Here I am!! The title is "Home, James!" and I think that you can see why. A little circus and a little Australian combines to make a cute subject.



Close-ups are in order, I would think:



For some reason my camera did not like this photo, nor the others that I took of it. . .oh, it might be the gold watercolor that I used. . .duh!!





Loved painting this with all of the details AND the Iris!!

Viv, thank you for allowing me to slide in this late. . .and I still need to do a few tweaks, but the hard part is finished!

Hugs, Peeps, Katherine

Katherine
- You are SO creative! You always come up with something different, that nobody else has thought of! Well done! I love it!

Here's the final version of Part 3 Gallery with Katherine's entry included.


That's it folks! Well done, and many thanks, everyone for making this such a great Plant Parade!

Pat - No, Katherin's got Irises in her painting. They are there, but they are small. Have a look at her close-ups.

Re: July 2014 Plant Parade

Re: July 2014 Plant Parade

Wow, the last page looks great!! Thanks for hanging with us while we fiddled and fiddled, Viv!!

My goodness, Viv, you had a better PP than I remember in quite a while. . .good for you!! Guess we all wanted to paint those beauties! I would have done a traditional Iris, but I have done that over and over. . .they are beautiful flowers, so, decided I wanted to go to the circus with them!!

Meryl, be careful, you have a virus!

Peeps, you outdid yourselves this month!! I didn't get to tell each of you how fantastic you did, so, EVERYONE, you did great!!

Hugs, Katherine
