Palette and Paint Thursday- I made it!

Whew, this has been some kinda crazy two weeks month in my family!  Our oldest is graduating from high school tomorrow and the other two have had not only their regular exams but also their exit exams so it has been a whirlwind of activity around here!  BUT, I did manage to get a bit more painting done on my WIP.  And a snap of my palette so I could be part of Palette & Paint Thursday!  So, here is what I got done on my new painting..
  I will actually have some time to paint a little more today- I think I want to put the leaves aside for a bit and get the Clematis painted in because their color (magenta) will affect how the other colors read.  So, hopefully, I'll be able to post more tomorrow before all the business of the day sets in!


And here is my palette...
 I'm off to see what everyone else did for P&P- you should too, it's always such a beautiful collection!
Have a wonderful day!
Stephanie

Stunning, as always Stephanie. I enjoy your colour palette and composition choices. Those leaves are coming up beautifully. Happy Painting and thanks for playing along this week, I really appreciate it as I know some weeks can just be a Whirlwind and you struggle to do all you have hoped. xx

I stopped by yesterday and when I did, my computer crashed. I'm having a horrible time with it. Took me 8 hours to get back online.

I just had to tell you how much I like this and I agree that the flowers will impact how the rest of the canvas reads. I so appreciate how you analyze the painting to help us understand it better.

BTW, congrats on your daughter's graduation.
