Does One Petal Count?

HI! Does one petal count? I picked this day lily in my front yard. It's my favorite. The colors are so vibrant.I wet the petal then used Cadmium yellow dark, Cad.Red,Thindigio Violet, and a touch of Cad.Orange.I used my pencil to draw the veins while it was wet,this works wonderfully for little veins.  I've painted just one petal and it's closing up. I do have another bud on it... if someone doesn't eat it.

 Sadie,our puppy, picked/ok,broke- another day lily today and it had 5 buds on it. I cringed and brought it inside hoping something will bloom in here. Sadie is also pestering dear Rudy, our 19  year old cat.. Every once and awhile I'll see a paw come out of the box.. she did get a toy dropped on her.. There's a lot of hissing going on.
Love to you,Diana
