The New Year is right around the corner!

It was my birthday a couple of days ago and Dave gave me these flowers. I decided to paint them today.  I might add some touches tomorrow, but I do like the simplicity. I hope you had a great holiday and that you'll have a wonderful New Year! What have you been doing/painting lately?
