This little painting was done through a challenge for http://rookiepainter.blogspot.com/. I love the concept of this site - an image is presented then artists are invited to share their art based on that image. It's so interesting to see the diversity in style. I felt proud like a little kid to see mine posted right alongside the artists' pieces.
The dahlia is inspiration for all kinds of things:
Fabric - Have a look at this darling little girl's dress.
Jewelry - And how about this antique brooch!
