Rainbow Flowers 4, 6×9″ pastel on UArt paper by Marie Marfia

Today I started with a contour drawing and then filled in the color. I wanted something fresh looking, which is funny because my flowers are not so fresh anymore. Whenever I move the vase, another petal or two drifts away. A reason to go get some more, I guess, but I can’t help feeling a little sad when they go. I’m bummed that the vanilla roses with the pretty pink trim didn’t open at all. They stayed rolled up tight and now they’re turning brown. What’s the matter with you guys? (We got our stems cut about five days ago and we’re afraid if we open up something else will get snipped.)
