I was looking around the internet last night and Googled "how to paint a simple flower" and came across this picture

It reminded me of the Queen Anne's Lace that my grandmother and I used to pick for bouquets. Anyway, I thought it would be a really easy flower to start out with so I made another AJ page. It's not quite right, but hey, I can't paint or draw so I'm pretty pleased with it.

fantastic!

we used to pick bouquets of Queen Anne's Lace and then dye them with food coloring. We loved our rainbow of flowers

It's so very pretty!
We used to pick it and come home covered with chiggers. Year after year. You'd think we'd learn, right?

I'm afraid I would have to argue with you
on that statement. That's a mighty fine rendition
of Queen Anne's Lace

There are cultivated Queen Anne's Lace strains now - I've even seen pink ones. We used to pick the wild ones and flatten them in books, then frame the dried blooms on colored matte board. Very pretty.
