Visited the Charleston Farmer’s Market in Marion Square on my last trip and came across a large flower booth. I was so happy to discover a big barrel full of sunflowers hiding on the side of the booth!

I found Diane Poinski on Facebook recently. She does wonderful hand painted photos and more importantly, she has written a free e-book to teach others to do the same. This is a technique I have always been curious about but never tried because I didnt like the expense of having to buy tubes of Marshall’s photo oils needed to do it. Until now, that was the best method, but now with the introduction of PanPastels, it is less messy and a lot less expensive. Not that the PanPastels are cheap by any means, but they seem to be easier to manage and have other applications besides hand painting photos, which justifies the expense better.

I just purchased some new textures from French Kiss Textures and my web buddy Leslie Nicole. This is the first image I am doing with her new textures and borders and I really like the results. She has a beautiful, soft quality to her textures and they inspire me to do these softer pieces.
This photo was taken at the Liz Stewart flower shop in Jacksonville Beach last year. I have had all of these flowers photos sitting in my catalog until I could figure out what to do with them. When I saw Leslie’s textures, I thought these photos would be perfect for trying out the new textures. I like the results a lot. Will get this printed, mount it on a board and try it with encaustic next!
