Yay! It's completed. This painting took a while. It was challenging, part of the photograph was focused parts weren't, so I was trying to achieve this affect. This wisteria vine is in Brian's, Grandma's garden. It doesn't look like wisteria I've seen so I had to double check that it was actually wisteria. I was told it is about 35 years old and some years it blooms better than other years. My mother-in-law told me that Brian's grandparents had horse that loved to eat this vine, so it has only bloomed since the horse has been gone.
I did second painting for Hayley's birthday this week. Ian and Hayley turned 15 on the 24th. I can't believe it! She jokingly told me that she wanted the elephant painting I did for the Patrick Project, so I painted a hip version. I"m calling it "The Phunky Phant", Be careful what you ask for:) I enjoyed painting this little guy:)
