and a pink carnation...

Decided it had been too long since I had painted some flowers, so I skipped on down to the florist down the street and bought these. Fluffy flowers like these are so difficult for me: give me a lily any day- it only has six petals! Enjoyed the silver cup, though- it was my father in laws baby cup, dated 1907, and it's a little tarnished inside, so it's yellowish in there. Fun, fun, to paint.
It's 6 x6- I think I'm going to switch to non textured surfaces for these tiny ones, Carol Marine is right, the texture looks HUGE on a little painting.

The silver cup is amazingly realistic. You captured the shine perfectly.
