ANCORA IMPARO SOLD


A friend brought me photos of flowers she had taken on a recent trip abroad. There were so many exquisite ones and I plan on painting from many of them. The papery thin petals of this cactus flower caught my attention. I feel in love with the muted yellow and lively center of the flower.

Blogger is playing tricks this evening (almost bedtime in South Africa)and I can only see the tiny image on my on site, while the painting above remains one big blank, but your flower looks light and frail and has lovely muted colors.The center is impressive. Will check again tomorrow, Linda!

The grays are really nice in this, as well as the confidence in your brushstrokes.
