Blue and White Vase

Diane Mannion, Blue and White Vase, 3.5x2.5" oil on linen/mounted, Snippet #12

Bougainvillea

Can't paint bougainvillea without permanent rose or Rembrant transparent red medium!  And John can't cut the grass without getting scratched by bougainvillea thorns.  Everything in Florida either scratches, bites, or stings.  Danger in paradise!  

Had two wipe-outs today... it happens.  Fortunately, painted this one ahead.  It's #12 of the January 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge.

Love this Diane! I'm a sucker for blue and white china.
I googled the right Arcadia this time - looks like a very interesting town!

Wendy, If you're ever down here, let me know and we can go still life hunting in Arcadia together.

Thanks, Margaret! Glad you like my self portrait... time to do another, although it's not my favorite thing to do.
