Keeping on, keeping on

I am still not 100% recovered from the cold but I am painting or should say attempting to paint. Yesterday I tried DSFDF challenge of sushi in the alkyd oils and had a hard time matching colors and applying a thick coat. So today I am trying to use my regular oils and it is going better. I spent a lot of today posting a painting to my new Etsy store. Thank you again Carol Schiff, I used your site as a model and a learning tool. I do believe in not reinventing the wheel and giving credit to the inventor. So Thank you, Thank you Carol. I did get one painting posted. I am going to post a picture I did a while back of a Hibiscus I snapped at a golf course. My daughter who was visiting from Denver at the time snatched it for herself.. Enjoy your weekend!

Hi Honor, What a beautiful Hibiscus. I love the color! It reminds me of my trip to Hawaii last fall...and of much warmer weather. :)
