Tulips, Anemones, and 3 vases.

We had a final arrangement assigned to us in floral design class and I actually liked mine quite a lot and brought it home. We get to purchase arrangements we create (if we like them enough to buy them) so I bought mine and my little sister's arrangement as well. I was super excited that I got to use some Anemones and Ranunculus in my arrangement.

From class:

To my house:

I love having fresh flowers at home!

Slightly Underpainting...

I have been working on getting back to painting...even if it's not an every day thing. As I was sending off my little hand painted ring Into the Forest She Goes, I thought how cool it would be to make a small painting of my heroine in the woods.

I thought I would share the work in progress as a short entry for today since I am desperately wanting to blog more. The background is still a bit on the purple side and I will be adding many more warm tones to the forest and finish up the lady in the formal gown.

Hope you like it and I apologize for the horrible surroundings which are way more red than I would like. Disclaimers...haha. :-D
