unexpected

 
White gladiolas are blooming in my yard: I have no recollection of planting them, but was happy to see them.
I made a backdrop from two cloths I picked up at the secondhand store: I'm always looking for lace or cut-out patterns that are not too complex for me to paint.
This is on about a 16x20 sheet of paper. I had intended to include the jar (below), but now I'm not sure ... It's still unfinished so I may change my mind.

I'm on my way to DC to paint flowers with my friends for two days: bliss!
Have a wonderful weekend!

I would leave out the jar - this way, it's an usual composition - something very different. Beautifully done, too. Have great fun on your trip!!!

Coming along beautifully, Laura. I think this is so pretty and has a gorgeous color palette too. In the thumbnail right now is a little pile o' dishes from your Happy St. Patty's day post. I love that piece!

Hope DC weekend is rewarding fun with friends--based on the glads, it better be, because I can't imagine you have ANYTHING to learn about painting flowers!
