Budding branches

I know everyone has different inspiration when they paint. I find inspiration in lots of things, but every now and then I find it in magazines.  I found a beautiful photo in my Better Homes and Gardens magazine of some flowering branches in a green pottery pitcher with a blue background.  The colors were gorgeous, and I loved the photo.  I ripped it out and threw it on my inspiration pile (which is getting a little out of hand but that’s a mess for another day). I never intended to do the painting just like the photo, but it was too awesome to change.  I removed a couple things in the photo, made the flowers a bit larger, and added an antique glaze on top.  Overall, I liked the painting.  It wasn’t quite the photo, but I loved the antique feel of it.
