Oil Painting of Hosta and Hybiscus

The girls and I painted together today, first thing! For this week’s Daily Paintworks Challenge, we hauled our supplies outside and found some flowers blooming in the yard. Holly and Meredith chose the Rose of Sharon (hybiscus). I started there, too, but wiped that painting out in frustration. Later on, refreshed and caffeinated, I sat down in the shade by this trusty hosta and tried again.

Meredith made another bold choice with her background color, and I love it. Holly just reminded me she did NOT want her painting on the blog. She insists on showing it only in person – I’ll respect that. It’s lovely, though, so come on over.
