Lesson for Monday

Here is Monday's lesson, yet another Australian Native, the Bottlebrush.....a lot more involved than I remembered, so maybe we may not get it all done in one lesson, but I hope so, if not, we will finish the following week, plus make a smaller flower.  All the shapes have to be folded, shaped and painted, and then assembled on to a "calyx" so it is very labour intensive.  The better news is I am sooo much better this week, I have had a great week with my family, we have been and done so many things, one of them being Whale watching at Port Stephens, we were lucky to see a number of whales, but none of them did the breeching for us, but we saw quite a few Tails!!!  Please excuse the quality of the picture, I am not having any luck lately with my camera.

Wow, this is another brilliant flower, you must have soo much patience! Your Whale watching sounds like fun, any good pics?

Beautiful flower Jenni, it looks stunning on that background.
I hope the ladies have fun doing this one.
I'm amazed you found the time to sit and get this done with your family over.

Jenni this is so pretty! I can't imagine how long it must take to make it, but so worthwhile! Beautiful work as always!!!
