Oh Fi and Patricia, both stunning.  Fiona,  just love those lavender hues.  Patricia, I agree, it is the hardest ever but boy did you come through with flying colors.  Both of these are stunning in their own way.

Patricia,

Excellent foxgloves.  I agree - it was a challenging work, but that's what "advanced" is all about.

Be proud of this one.

 :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou:  So much Lynnp, Sharon, Dennis and Mea for your lovely comments about my painting when I was feeling pretty down and wondering if it was even a cheek to submit it!!  You can therefore imagine how happy I was to receive such wonderful comments.  Thank you all so much and bless you.


As I said previously, it was without a doubt the most challenging I have ever done and was pleased that I am not the only one who found it so.  I realise that it is an advanced course but often wonder whether I am actually capable enough of being in the "advanced" league????  lol.  Anyway, I just love everything we do and enjoy every minute of it even if I struggle along the way. 


Thank you all once again for your encouragement and support which means so much to me.    Patricia

Yes, Retta, I have managed to get some "me" time and am making hay while the sun shines and am loving every minute of it!
