Flowers are my favorite thing to paint. I don't know why, but they just come naturally to me. I'm very lucky to be able to get some amazing bouquets at the farmers market and there is nothing I like better than setting them up in a great vase and getting to work.
Another great thing about painting florals is that you can't procrastinate or obsess over the painting. You just have to get on with it as flowers do not last very long and will usually change from day to day.
