    Default Amateur Night 4 - paintings in oil

    Ok here we go! I started learning to paint just over a year ago - this is fun! Hope to do more orchids soon. Dottie is my granddog, the queen trigger is painted on driftwood and the Max is painted from a photo of Molly Taco's plant. Thanks to all who let me use your photos to paint from.

    It should - I was in such a hurry to finish the painting I forgot to photo it before I gave it to you. Nice wall, BTW. Nice max too. Mine didn't bloom this year but it is growing like a weed.
    Thanks to all for your nice comments. Still learning and have a long way to go but it's all about enjoying the trip.
