I found this bowl at a consignment store and have been looking forward to painting it. The camellia seemed to be the perfect companion and would have been if I could paint flowers! I'm not sure why flowers are such a struggle for me. I try to paint the shapes and colors and not "think" flower, but I still don't have the hang of it. Other artists fool us into thinking they are easy, but NO! I love my bowl so all is not a loss. :o) Does anyone know what the Chinese character means?
