Wordless Wednesday well not really...mushroom madness

P.S. painting a forget me not, you paint the two top Y strokes,pulling your stroke from top to center, rotate your piece, paint the tale end of the Y and then there is no other option but to fill in the remaining two spots.  Sometimes when painting a small flower it's hard to fit in the petals sort of evenly.   After that, you'll be doing your flower arrangements as well like that.  I did a wedding and my helpers could be heard repeating "letter Y" and rotate...
