Painter again

Another flower in Painter again.

I had to go to the store and do chores on my day off.
I actually made it into my room where I make art, but it was only to tidy up.
Since I didn't work, I went to the hospital early to relieve Dad at his post.

Mom has been disconnected from her IV and the chest tube, which is good news. 
Maybe she will be moving this week, maybe to a facility with more physical therapy.
Home would be OK but the therapists will push her harder than we can.

I started out with a picture of a flower arrangement. I took it last year.
I'm running out of pictures on my hard drive that I would like to paint up. 
I need to go out and take more pictures! Especially to the beach.

I started out scribbling with a tool I didn't use much before, an Ink tool:

I didn't like it because it's one of those tools on Painter X that looks just like another tool.
I need to figure out how to vary the thickness of the line as I'm drawing it.
I know the program can do it. I just need to look it up...

Here is the drawing a little later. 
Blended with blender/Smear and Just Add Water and oil detail.

Here is what I ended up with:

I think I smeared it too much... Lost some of the spontaneity. 

That's one dang hard word to spell.
