My first acrylic painting on a 11 inch by 14 inch canvas. I used the cosmos flowers from class #1 and I added butterflies. The colors are a little off from the scanner.

Thanks folks.


My wife likes the cosmos and keeps having me paint them for her.  The color has to be just right :) and now she keeps requesting butterflies.

Pretty painting!   :smitten:
