Happy May Day

It's May 1st and it's beautiful outside. I live in Michigan so that probably means I just jinxed us all! Ha ha! I love this time of year. The trees are budding, spring flowers are starting to bloom and perennials are starting to peek through the ground (and I'm ignoring my allergies).

I found these flowers on pinterest. I'm not sure what kind they are. I worked on the painting below for much longer than I should have. Sometimes painting just can't capture the real life beauty. Not that I'm unhappy with how they turned out. Just not sure if the painting did the photograph any justice. I think I need to stick with painting people. :) Anyway, these are dedicated to my sis, who is taking her state board practical in cosmetology as I type. Love you, sis! You're gonna do great!
