AT LAST, my paints and brushes! Finally taking them out and playing with them is sort of like being born again. When I don't create, I feel my flame slowly extinguishing. So watching a You Tube Video today by Marjorie Harris Clark, I set to paint my first pink roses. Harder than it looks but worth another try. The leaves are actually harder to paint than the roses. I tried a few and then to give them my own personal twist, washed them over with a watered down purple color once they were dry. I love how they turned out. Not bad for a first try I think. I'll try some yellow and lilac roses next.
