Bright beginnings for the New Year...Wildflowers I picked while I was walking along the beach. I started this before Christmas and had trouble with the yellows...there IS a lot of it!  The flowers, the body of the jug and the handle, I was yellowed out!! After a few days off from painting I decided to finish it.. the background is not quite as bright as this in real life though. Sometimes the camera just doesn't do what it should!  I'm not that comfortable painting bright...I favor softer colors and neutrals...for all that, it was  good to get out of my comfort zone!! I hope everyone had a happy Christmas!

    1. Thanks Chris, it's certainly a change. I had a different vision when I first started it, but it took on a life of it's own!
