Yesterday, I took a much needed break from everything and just relaxed except for a few minutes at the gym and visiting Painting Friends to see the activity there. There is now a Lonely Brush Club where members can set up their own team and paint what they want, from the same photo, their own photos or from real life. The individual team decides the subject matter, length of time of the project and how often the team will post their work. Should be lots of painting enjoyment for the members wanting to study certain subjects.
I did this painting during the year of painting that a group of five did in 2005. We did a painting a week for a full year. That was a most enjoyable adventure. During that time, five strangers became friends. Because I don't paint flowers very often, I find them a challenge. I have to admit though, I love the colors in this one.
I forgot the mention that I think the reference photo used was from the Wet Canvas RIL.
