Do you have a favorite flower?  Have you painted florals in the past?  If you have, try a different medium to challenge yourself or a different style. If you haven’t done much with florals, this is your opportunity to  experiment. We’d love to have you post your work in progress and completed artwork on our Facebook page. And tag #parrishartscouncil on Instagram.  It will be fun to see what everyone creates.
