Hi friends! Today I have a loose and free bouquet to paint.
I went with a red white and blue colorway in honor of Memorial Day. A day to remember fallen soldiers who served our country. I love seeing the flags on display in small Maine towns. There are many elder veterans who put these out every year prior to memorial day and leave them out through July 4th for the parades. This painting can be a reminder of what we have to be thankful for. I hope you enjoy a few peaceful moments of reflection while you paint along.
