I worked from a photo I took of lilacs that were picked from my yard last year. I’ve been hesitant to paint it until today.

Floral arrangements and any grouping of flowers is the most intimidating subject for me.  It’s impossible to keep track of all the petals and it’s actually dizzying for me. My solution to that, since I really wanted to try, was to keep it simple and focus on making marks rather than painting the details of the flowers. I’m really happy without the results . . .and surprised!
