This is the painting I did for my dear friend Barb from https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sicilianos-Market/150135141814 She asked me to do this for her in exchange for her to do some stain glass for me. (she is very talented).
I was so nervous, as I had never painted this flower before. She sent me a picture of what she wanted, which was in the picture and I need to figure out how I would paint this beautiful flower. Well once the kids went to school I started messing around with some techniques and before I knew it I had figured out how I wanted to paint it. On the days that I painted this, I completely lost track of time. The first day I forgot to eat breakfast and lunch, and if you can believe it...Forgot to go to my favorite Thrift store...:) It was all worth it though, as I am so happy how it turned out.
