Dandelion Canvas

Hey everyone!
I've got something a little different for you tonight.
I don't know if I've mentioned this here on the blog before,
but just before last Christmas I started taking painting on canvas classes.
I took three different classes on holiday themed canvases,
taught by a wonderful local artist named Heather Cash.
You can click that link to check out her website.
She's such a great teacher. :)
She really breaks it down and makes it so easy!

Tonight she resumed classes with something I've always wanted 
to learn how to paint -- dandelions!
I typically share this stuff on my Christy Gets Crafty Facebook page,
but I thought I'd try sharing it here as well and see what you think.

A blank canvas and a palette of paint ...

... becomes a scene of dandelions against a deep blue sky!

Another angle to show the texture.

Anyway, I hope you like it!

Let me know if you're interested in seeing more of my canvases
as I continue to take classes -- I'll share if you enjoy seeing them.

Have a great day!
