Summer fresh flowers

Summer fresh flowers. That is all I could think of as this painting progressed.
I did a "first" painting and was really fighting the texture of the board as I was painting
over an old work. Many layers of paint are good sometime but
 not yesterday.
So I pulled out a clean board with a neutral grey background and proceeded.
The bouquet grew.
Patterns emerged.  
Lights. Darks. 
It all just happened.
Love the result.
