Lilacs are interesting flowers to paint. They hold their flowers in tight little balls then open and stay clustered together.
SOLDThis should get you ready for spring! We have a great big old lilac bush in the backyard so I should be doing these for years. The apple blossoms were clipped off a tree at the park. Don't tell.
