This is the 2nd image from the Weekend Event at WetCanvas. A combo of a floral, and a cemetery for bkg. Oil on canvas technique. One layer. Working size 4800x3200 pxl at 300 ppi. The title is from an old song, the flowers, and the name of the lady who provided the photo images.

GZ, Pat, Belvrog, Mac, Byron, Mike - Thanks for your comments!
Mike - I usually paint on my Dell laptop (This piece), or on my HP laptop. I think sometimes, an older computer might have trouble because of lack of RAM - I have that with my (Very old) Desktop pc. Even though I added more memory, it still struggles to keep up, and I have very slow performance with it.

Rowena, Caesar, Scott, Lima, Bo, Sabena - Thank you all for the great feed-back!
Caesar, Scott - Sorry, I just had to use the name for a title, it was too cool. Besides, a little misdirection can be amusing.
