Weekly Challenge at Inspiration Avenue: "Happy St. Paddy's Day"

The challenge this week at Inspiration Avenue was "Happy St. Patrick's Day" and of course it had to be something green!  I've been sharing my progress on my current painting which features a green zinnia and 'tho I'm not quite done, it's close enough that I'll submit ti without feeling too embarrassed ;)
 Really, all that's left to do is tighten up the zinnia a bit and the black and blue salvia needs to be softened a bit- there's also one leaf that I haven't done yet.  So, not much left and then time to do a new lady!
Be sure to stop by Inspiration Avenue to see all the entries for the week- they're certain to be varied as always and likely to be full of GREEN!
Cheers,
Stephanie

I think Jaime hit the nail on the head - you really do paint like an angel!! Love the colour palette in this one too, nice and fresh - I rarely use greens but I do like them.

A very pretty painting. To me it looks finished but I understand that you have a bit more magic to add :-) The detail is amazing, the flowers look so real. Beautiful!
