Day 27 -- 30 in 30 Challenge

Yellow Hibiscus
Oil   6x6
This was fun to paint.  I even got pretty excited with the block in--the initial stage of the painting because I could see that it was going well from the beginning.  I think that bright center is what really drew me to painting this flower, but as it turned out, I enjoyed trying to depict all those dips and ruffles in the petals as well. 
If you have followed this blog since the beginning of the challenge, you may remember that when I announced I had signed up for the challenge, I stated up front that I probably would not paint every day but would paint when possible.  Lo and behold, I really got into it and have only missed the first day because we were out of town.  Who would've thought it--I surprised myself.  Of course, I may be bragging too soon because there are still 3 days to go.  Wish me luck. 
Have a great day!  Thank you for all your encouragement.
