My friend and I paint in a building belonging to our church. There was a dying bouquet of flowers in the room and the custodian was preparing to throw them away. I was able to save these few blooms from their fate. This is the result but they didn't last much longer. Same fate, just a different trash can! I participated in an art show at a local private school last weekend. I was fortunate to sell several framed paintings so I am very happy. A boost to the fragile ego.
