I just adore lilac! One of the flowers I can keep in my home year round without getting bored by the scent! Unfortunately they don't last as long and for some reason I can't seem to be able to grow any in our backyard. A friend of mine gave me some of hers and wanted to "preserve" it somehow, so I decided to paint lilacs as my second painting.
I am not very pleased by the way it turned out. I think I need to take some classes or something. I haven't even read a single book on oil painting and am going just by the huntch how it is supposed to be done. But I am getting restless. I need more...And of course I can't afford to spend a fortune on MFA or MA, but I am thinking very much about it and am sure I'll figure out something. Do you like it?
