First painting for a while Iíve actually finished!

After 3 afternoons of mowing the foot-high buttercups and dandelions of the paths around my rhododendrons, azaleas, spireas, weigelas,
hydrangeas and forsythias,
as well as the flowering fruit trees area,
I imported PS brushes, to throw some paint from
W & N Watercolor set to create this:
my senses impression of the whole thing.

It was fun to play again. :D:D:D
Things may not be exactly as shown. :p

Mowing...did you say mowing?!? I even mowed in my sleep this weekend Hinket! This is a cheerful and at the same time peaceful piece that shows the fruit of a gardeners labor. Excellent!:):):):):)

Thanks, Alexandra,

Yeah, I do get a feeling of satisfaction when the buttercups,
dandelions, and the stray blades of grass are cut, or at least
mashed to the ground. :D:D:D
I have become so envious of my neighbour's ride-on mower.

And next, to clean the crap out of the pond. Maybe it will inspire
another painting. :p
