"Ranunculus" 8" x 8" oil on panel

Trader Joe's always has the best flowers and reasonably priced. Who can resist Ranunculus, especially knowing that Spring is not too far behind?  I gave myself permission to have a bit of fun on this painting. After all....the flowers looked like orange round shapes to me. I didn't get hung up on any of the details... I paint without my glasses on anyway. That way, if I don't see it, it's not there. If something looks blurred, I try to paint it as such.
