I've started another Garden Palace floor cloth.
This one is for the Rose Garden Parlor, or as DH might say, "the front room of the shack".
FYI: The size is 58" by 91.5"
At this point, I was painting and adding layers of background colors as that was all I had to start with.
Will the real inspiration please step forward.
As you know, in my head I work about 6 and a half projects ahead of the one at hand.
Therefore, I had plenty of inspiration to sort through to get to the one and only that I hoped would please me the most.
Sometimes it is a hard thing to do.
Of course, I always knew it would be flowers.
Of course, I wanted it to be roses.

But of course, I do not know how to paint roses.
Since this Garden Palace is a real life fantasy daydream, I can paint fantasy flowers.
So that's it.
My favorite pictures are the ones with all the paint pots and brushes on the work in progress.
After a quick white charcoal sketch, I worked up and down the row of fantasy flowers adding layers of color.
Then I started adding layers of fun stuff.
Each time I stopped for lunch, I posted on my Instagram.
But the thing I did that was new for me was to also share on Facebook.
I fear that is the reason I have neglected sharing here; however, I only started last Wednesday.
This is where I am right now.
I don't consider this side finished but I'm ready to start the garden row down the other side.
I will be sharing.
Count on it.
And thank you all so much for all of your comments and good thoughts.
I appreciate you!
