Thanks Louisa, Susan and Danielle. And a friend of mine that's from Hawaii just informed me that there they call anthuriums "Boy Flowers!"
Cheers,
Sharon

thanks Patricia and Val - and I'll borrow your hat anytime, Val (now get off that floor!!)!! I took some photos of beautiful anthuriums while at the botanical garden in Puerto Vallarta last month - can't wait to try using these techniques to paint those one day soon!!

Cheers,
Sharon

Sharon,

Gorgeous anthuriums.  Just beautiful!   I think this was the best PB class I've done.

Hey, I will PM you to see if your visit includes Honolulu.  If so, maybe Liz, Denise, and I can meet you.

Thanks, Nina and Mea! And we're going to be spending 6 days in Maui, Mea - no Honolulu side trip this time. We'll be there March 12-17th, staying at the new Hyatt Resort. Let me know if you guys will be in Maui for some amazing reason - sure would be nice to see you all in person!
Cheers,
Sharon
