More Geraniums

 "Geranium #5" -- oil on canvas 6x6"

"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.
