What's UP in the Studio- Makin' Progress

I am gradually reclaiming my studio time as there are less and less local fruits to choose from for jamming! Hooray, I've really missed painting. A LOT. Anyways, here's just a quick check in to show you where I am with my zinnia. I *think* I'll be done today or tomorrow (if I have time to paint after today.....I do still have 20 tarts to make for Saturday and I've now added pralines to my regime:))

Hope everyone has a wonderful hump day!

It's coming along beautifully... can't wait to see it finished. I will be trying my hand at painting flowers soon.

This is turning into one stunning piece. Looks like it will be finished soon. Of course, the pralines and the tarts will probably have to come first. Have a super day after hump day because I'm so late getting here.

20 tarts!?! You are one crazy girl!
Pralines? I love them...can't even find them around here.
And the beloved Zinnia.
OMG! How do you get the leaves to curl so naturally???
Wait. Don't tell me.
Keep your magic to yourself...I couldn't do it if you told me :)

Oooh, it's looking so good!!

I have many orange zinnias in my garden this summer. They are truly amazing and just keep blooming and blooming. I'm glad you are imortalizing this one! And the petals do curl just like that!
