Day 2 - Fresh Picked

Fresh Picked

My husband loves to grow and pick flowers.
I love to paint flowers.

Fresh Picked
10" x 10" acrylic on a panel 

Zinnias, echinacea, laropie and sedum 
all in an old Mason jar.

Here's how this started out.
Not all that pretty, Huh?
I wanted the flowers to be the star,
so I used this dark mottled background.

Here's a little time lapse so you can see how it all began.

Here's a little closeup of that red hot star in front.

Here's my models.
I don't think this will be the last time you see these bad boys.
Thanks for stopping by today and please share if you can.
There are over 1000 artists participating in the 30 in 30
