Diane Mannion, 5 Fountain Geraniums, 8x10" oil on linen
Fifth in the 30/30 Challenge! Painted the fastest and like it the most. Working from old photos for some of these challenge paintings. The reference photo for this painting was taken at a local garden center that unfortunately went belly-up. And at the time I took this snapshot, I knew I wanted to paint it but couldn't without being too tight. My painting skill is now catching up with what I want to express... have finally gotten to the point where I can work from photos and change almost everything. Interesting to look back at my old photos and discover new material. Changed a lot for this painting, colors, design, perspective, added the background window and the kitty. Really having too much fun with this challenge. Thank you Leslie Saeta for starting it!
