You have some exciting color work going on in this painting Linda. I like the way the flower catch light and the contrasts.

Re: More Floral Fun

Tracey, Mary and RMC,
Thank you all so much for the kind words.

The thing I like about acrylic is just the fun of the medium. I don't have as much pressure with acrylic, because it is not my main medium. It frees me up to play with the paint. They are much less expensive than oils too, so if I ruin a painting, Who cares?

Love,
Linda
