Week 31 to 32 ~ Secret Garden

Lupins (12x19, soft pastel on black paper)

Thanks Dana Marie for another great challenge! Sorry this took so long.

Two Palms by Saundra Lane Galloway

Dana and I have already had a chuckle from this offering I have, and so we decided it would be good to post this. You may have noticed it doesn't look ANYTHING like the photograph inspiration this time around. No, you don't have to adjust your IS a painting of two palm trees. I tried to paint the flowers and greenery three times and somehow this was what I finally ended up with. I finally decided not to fight what obviously wanted to be palm trees! It isn't my normal style, but I have often said how healthy it is to do something completely experimental. I believe it clears the brain of all those dusty cobwebs and fills one up with fresh creativity! Sounds good doesn't it! :) So, this little 6"x9" canvas on panel is for your enjoyment!
