Red Geraniums

It's always nice when I paint from a still life and I feel satisfied with the results.  This Geranium plant actually looked pretty bad so I had to stick some other leaves in it and pump up the flowers.  I bought this plant several weeks ago with the intention of painting it and never got around to it until today. I am pretty much a plant killer so I watched this beautiful plant's health get worse every day. I even try to do right by them too! It's frustrating. I think I need some Miracle grow or something.
