Flower Painting

I finally made the time to finish the watercolor painting for the thank you cards that a started working on a few days ago.

 Now all I have to do is decide which ones are good.

Which ones are passable.

And which ones could have been better done by a blindfolded chimpanzee.

The only problem is that right now, I don't have any perspective on them.

Okay - maybe this one.  I like the flower blossoms, but I don't care for the stems.

And this one - I like it a lot.  Especially the little fallen petals.

Fortunately I made extra, so once I get my DH to help me decide who gets which, I can just toss the worst of the bunch without having to paint more.

I think this little exercise has gotten rid of my yearly desire to paint.  It's sort of like when you bake for the holidays.  By the time you're done baking, you don't want to eat any of it, let alone bake anything else - for months.

Let's just hope that my little paintings will be well received!
