100 Paintings in 100 Days Challenge
'Inspirations from a Back Yard'

'Rose of Sharon'
6 x 6

Day 82

I did this painting for the Daily Paintworks 'Nature's Arrangement
Challenge'.  The instruction was to paint some flowers plein air using
a very limited palette of one blue, one red, one yellow and
white.  You were to use only a large, medium and small paintbrush
and you had to stop after painting for one hour and call it
'done'!  This worked out well for me because it also fulfilled
my own '100 Paintings in 100 Days Challenge - Inspirations from a
Back Yard' Challenge, and also provides me with a new
plein air painting to post on the SVPAP blog - and most of
all was just a lot of fun to paint.  Can't ask for better!!!

If you would like to see more of my work,

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see

Thank you, Theresa - Daily Paintworks has been providing some very inventive challenges - wish I had time to do them all!

Thanks, Sherry - I didn't realize until after I finished the painting that it would work in some other areas that I am challenging myself!
