Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year.

I painted this today for a lesson for my class at Riverside Art Center.  This dahlia is from a photo taken by John Robinson from the website "Paint My Photo."

This painting is 9" x 12" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.  The pink is from my favorite pink color - Opera - from Holbein paints.

The focal point is, of course, the flower itself, and I tried to soften up the background so it wouldn't compete with the flower.
