How many peonies and poppies can I paint? As many as I want to. I'm still working some areas that I'm unhappy with, but it's coming along. I used a 1/2" flat for the petals and Permanent Rose, cerulean blue, new gamboge, a little this and a little that.

A funny thing happened on the way to the Birds Nest

A bird built its nest in this can about a year ago. I saved it (posted a pic on my other blog) and wanted to paint it. The paint gave way to pencil and the nest got lost in the leaves. I got so involved in the leaves and twigs, that I forgot to leave the little dark area where the bird stayed . So now its just a can with leaves and twigs. Make sense?
