I'm a leftover flower child...

I've been dipping my brush into some oils lately. I think I like it. I haven't painted in oils for many years, mostly because of the smell, and the fact that they are not dry when you decide it's time to take the bus home, from where ever. You see in the old days, I would go out into the "field" and paint, it wasn't until I started to paint in folk art that I stayed in and at a painting table not at an easel, and even the watercolours that I have done lately have been at a table. Very foreign to me, so this little piece was painted at a table with no real flower in front of me. But I like it! I always am drawn to flowers, I'm a leftover flower child, if it didn't draw attention to me I think I might wear a flower in my hair.And yes I'd love to go to San Francisco.
