A carnation caught my eye when I went to pick up stuff for dinner. I have sort of an odd relationship with flowers.. I used to work in a flower shop. Ever since, they've had a special place in my heart. I really struggle to paint them though. They change so fast that multiple sittings become problematic. So I tried to be a little looser and more direct in my handling this time. I felt like it came off pretty well in the end! Hopefully that carries through, and won't feel as intimidated next time around..
Hope you'll enjoy it. As always, thanks for looking!
