This summer I visited my boyfriend's hometown of Valdosta, Georgia. It was my first time visiting the south and we had a great time getting to know the town and the history of his family. I really love Nature. For me it was an inspiring experience to see so many different birds, plants, butterflies and dragonflies, mosquitoes...
I remember my first acrylic painting was a still life with a teapot, leeks and some flowers from a photo I found on a magazine. I always admired the classic flower arrangements on big paintings you can see at the museums. So this time I decided to paint some flowers to decorate my mother-in-law's apartment. She loves flowers and color, and me too, so it was an easy fit. I got some art supplies at Hobby Lobby and painted for a couple of days in the porch, giving my blood for free to Georgia's mosquitoes, who by the way had a feast.
