Had to try it...

The Challenge this month was to paint outside, preferably flowers, wild or garden.
My schedule and the weather just didn't come together. BUT this week, encouraged by a little show of sun, I set up all my paraphernalia in my yard to give it a shot.

The wind was blowing, the birds were curious and the bees thought I was a flower.
Just a little over a half hour passed before I was chilled to the bone.
Didn't even have time to "plant the scilla in dirt" LOL.

With a hot beverage and back indoors at my table, I worked on this poppy in the sun to "warm up". This painting was based on a photo shared by a dear artist friend. Thank You, Barbara Ann!
