I saw nelson surgestion  for flower power , now I can't do flowers  but I can remember the 60s so I sat here scribbling a few images from the time

Very nice  mary , I was in a craft shop today and  I was very tempted to try ws oil paint  but i think i should reduce my large stock of acrylic paint before tryingsomething new.

Thanks suz , looking at some of the beautiful flowers posted people must think that I read a different brief,  I do know Nelson loved the 1960s music scene

Flower power with a 1960s flavour and a few flowers this time

Nice work . And yes you've done it 

Suz Darran said:

More flower power as I loaded the first one wrong somehow and comments come on the wrong place.....Hope I have done it correct now.
