"Geranium #6" -- oil on canvas 6x6"
The last post I did was on May 3rd. And today is June 11th! Ooops! Trying to catch up. While at Pine Hill Nursery a few weeks ago, I spied these beautiful geraniums. I bought 5 small plants and talked the saleslady into letting me pick off a nice, fat pink bloom to take home to paint. They're so nice at Pine Hill!
Painting geraniums is kind of a freaky experience. I hadn't tried it before and quickly realized that for the first 95% of the painting, it looks like a big blob! It's only the last few defining brush strokes that pull it all together.
