The Party's Over


Everything must come to an end. These little flowers were a joy to paint. One thing good is that I don't have to spell their name Alstroemeria again, who thinks up these names anyway. I'm off to Stop&Shop, to check out their flowers. Happy painting everyone.

  2. Perfect title. I love flowers when they lose their blooms. It really is like the end of a parade, and sometimes the wilted blooms have such interesting shapes. This is lovely.
    You know, every time I see these in the store I think Isn't there a nickname for these flowers that's easier?

    Thank you, at 2:55pm I am just about ready to wilt. Maybe a little nap will do. All the best my friend.
