Fuchsias Tray

phonegirlMay 15, 2010

Hi Everyone, Life has been busy and now that we are having some nice weather it's time to work in the yard. So that's how I spent my day.

I stopped by the greenhouse and bought some vegetables last week. They had beautiful fuchsias so I decided to try painting some. Finished this tray so thought I'd share.

Bebe.....nice tray! Nice leaves and your flowers do look like Fuchsia's. I used the "pop" the flower buds on my DGM plants. Funny how a beautiful painting can trigger a fond memory.

Oops, Belle,--not Bebe's, it's Punk's tray. Bet it was all that gold edging that made you think it was Bebe's--she likes to use the gold too. ;o)

Very nice, Punk, they look exactly like fuchsias. I was lucky enough to have some at this house when we moved here--four of them and two are taller than I am, the other three I keep trimmed down a bit! I had only seen them in hanging baskets, but these were planted in the flower beds.

Love all your gold lines, bet that took a bit of time, but it sure sets the tray off nicely.

Vique, glad you liked the colors I chose for the tray.

Belle, did you get in trouble for popping the flowers buds off DGM plants?

Luvs, I would love to see pictures of your fuchsias. I didn't know they grew that big any where. The gold lines were very fast as I just used my liner brush and criss-crossed them and then added the dots.

Thanks for all your nice comments.

Thanks, KM for your comment.

Luvs, I'll have to get over and take a look at your fuchsias.

Anj, thanks and once you get all your little ones grown, you'll have more painting time. I paint fast so I can move on.
