April Plant Parade

Hello, flower lovers.

Welcome to April's Plant Parade.

THINK PINK

Any medium, any size. You choose

Thank you for participating (I apologize, but my right arm is still not fit, and I am unable to paint).

No posting of your final work before the 25th, as usual.

I hope you will find some inspiration with my photos.
ENJOY!

Re: April Plant Parade

Thank you, Eyepaint.

I love flowers, but live in a region that suffers from drought, hence not allowing me to have as much plants as I would like.

Some of these are in my garden, the others are from flower shops, and others from public gardens. Since I cannot paint, I do photographies and make a database for when I will be able to paint them.

Re: April Plant Parade

I'm hoping to take part this month. I have a pink magnolia in my garden and I am waiting patiently for the flowers to open.

Re: April Plant Parade

Maria, I hope that your arm gets better soon. I have just finished a pink flower painting so if out of time I can submit that. But I hope to paint from your inspirational photos: delightful and thank you.

Re: April Plant Parade

A lovely variety of gorgeous pinks - thank you Maria.
I sincerely hope I can do something this month - my conscience is pricking!

Re: April Plant Parade

Thank you all for your lovely and warm words.

I am sure that you all come out with beautiful art, wereas inspired by my photos, or not.

Kay, I only like pink in nature - pink flowers are so lovely, even if I like other colours- or in some portuguese tradicional master's houses, otherwise it is a colour I quite dislike. Funny, no? Go figure...

Re: April Plant Parade

I've started mine! Well at least I've begun....and how long it will take me to getting around to finishing it, is anyone's guess! I will try to finish it on time this month.

Re: April Plant Parade

That's great Christel!
And believe it or not......I've finished mine too! Not entirely happy with it, so if I get time I might try another.
