Another view - a composite sketch --- flowers from the geraniums in the garden bed, leaves from one pot of plants, and a change in flower pot.

Art by design!

Well designed! I love the way the leaves peep over the frame you've drawn.

This is so sassy and strong! I really like the linear frame, too, cara. Wonderful design sense at work here!

These are really super! The combination of line and loose painting is wonderful!

I enjoyed looking back to see how this design evolved - you pull it all together here for a very strong image. You just get better every day!

Very very nice. I sometimes forget to click on the image. It's so much better in the larger version. I love this loose style yet there's no mistaking what it is. Great!

Beautifully done! Combining images is great practice for making what you see your own in a painting too.

Beautiful design Lin. I love the delicate line work and the loose painting. Just enough information. Bringing the leaves outside the frame was an excellent choice. This is a really strong piece.
