These are the same carnations from my previous post. I am going to paint them every other day to see how the fill out. Kinda fun.

So... did you know it's easier to paint carnations if you turn the blooms away from you? Lol. That's what I did in this painting. So I'm kinda cheating:)
I haven't blogged or painted for the past two and a half weeks. My father-in-law had open heart surgery. So spent a lot of time at the hospital plus my youngest has been home for the past 2 weeks and my oldest came home for a week. Now I'm back to being an empty nester again. It doesn't get any easier. She even took her cat:(

This carnation was very difficult for me to paint. As hard as I tried I couldn't see the layers. I lost track of how many times I wiped it and started over! I finally got it on the umpteenth time. Woohoo!!

Just got back from vacation. It was cooler in Mexico than it is here in Denver! In Mexico it didn't matter whether it was 5 o'clock or not. We saw people drinking at 9:00 in the morning! We at least waited till 12:01 :)
