Can I just say I love Polly! I got this piece back in November for my birthday and for some reason I never posted it. I love love love it! I found her on etsy and now I'll be a lifetime collector! You can check her out here at Polly's etsy site. Sorry the pictures aren't better. I tell you the pictures don't do it justice!

I've been working with pansies a lot lately. At first the purples frustrated me...but then I bought and new purple and it makes them so much easier! Who knew there were so many different shades of purple pansies? It was an overcast day so the painting is much more subdued than I normally paint but I really like the way it turned out.

This set was commissioned for Christmas so I waited to post it so it wouldn't ruin any surpirses. Aren't they cute! And so much fun. Now I have to do one for my daughter. It was killing her that they weren't for her!

|The first stage|
|The first stage completed|
|Second Stage, I added warmth to the background|
|Second Stage, added warmth all over|
|Stage 3 and 4, kept adding color. Its always at this point that I get so caught up in the painting that I forget to take photos! Maybe next time I'll remember.|
|I think I'm finished but I'm not sure. I'll have to wait and see.|
