It was a long tough week when it came to painting. I had a few days of appointments and errands but actually did find time to practice on a few pieces. I've resorted to using the word "practice" because I don't think any of them are among my best work. I continue to struggle to loosen up. But hey, this is the year I decided to learn to paint...so I'll chalk it up to that. A week of practice.
First...there were the few surviving flowers from a beautiful bouquet my daughter and her family gave us for Thanksgiving. I had high hopes for this one...but alas, I think I missed the mark.
