July Geraniums

Choosing bright red geraniums to paint on this Independence Day, I have found one little window in this busy family day to paint.  Using plenty of paint, I have added a different medium - walnut oil.  I am trying it  because of the shine it can add.  I am using food grade oil, as the artist varieties have solvents that I can not breathe.  So far, it has given a light shine to thinner areas, and it remains to be seen of this lasts as it dries.  I love to experiment!  This makes painting number 916 in 916 days :)
