Lilac and Lily

I've always struggled with lilacs. So much detail. I squint and squint, but for lilacs, that's not helped. This time I tried a different trick for reducing the detail. I used Photoshop to blur the image for me. I think this is the most successful I've been with lilacs. Here's some of the music I grooved to. (To continue looking at the art while you listen, right click on the colored word 'music' and go to Open Link in New Tab.)

You're right about painting lilacs! I just love 'em, but painting them is a challenge. They're usually a mass which is difficult to differentiate, yet they are delicate which one wants to capture. I'd say you did a magnificent job!
