It was a happy day when I found this piece of decorative paper at a nearby shop to use as the background for my golden pear. I love the gold against the violet. The light pink flowers are actually pure white on the paper but they looked too stark when I painted them white, so I added some warm pink to tone them down a bit. I thought this painting would be a 'snap' to complete but it was more complicated than I'd anticipated. That happens a lot...more than I'd like...easy is just plain good sometimes...
