|Venetian Roses & Lilies in Carnival Glass|
Ah, flowers. Roses-red and otherwise, lilies, white, yellow, pink and spotted, gold and yellow marigolds. They sooth us with their scent. They inspire us to write poetry. We grow them. We decorate our home with them. They adorn our celebrations; we give them to our sweethearts and we give them to our mothers....at least once a year.
Artistically, we also photograph them, sketch them, sculpt them, and paint them in many different genres and methods. Many times on my walks along Muskegon Lake, I take my camera to photograph flowers I come across.

I, like many other artists, enjoy recreating the beauty of a flower.

My first attempts at flower painting in acrylic were of single flowers, not really having the skills I felt I needed,
I felt it best to start small. Some of these turned out rather well for first attempts.

In an internet search I found quite a few websites dedicated to flower painting, some of which state they offer free lessons.
Here are three that looked interesting:
