30 x 30 inch acrylic "Red Dahlia"

This is # 7 in my floral series and the largest. I actually stretched this canvas myself on stretcher bars (a first for me) because I wanted it large and square and I couldn'd find the right canvas. It worked out ok but it was a little more work and the canvas really soaked up a lot of paint (because I didn't prime it!). Tomorrow I think I may work a bit on the background, perhaps adding a few leaves, as it is a little bare as it is.
