Around here, we've had a relatively wet, mostly cool spring, and it seems everything has been blooming amazingly - it's beautiful! I've done several small studies of flowers from my yard. Above are a couple. Floral studies present challenges for me, mostly in the amount of detail included. However, I enjoy the colors, finding the shadows, even watching them open, turn, and droop as I am painting them. I really enjoy having a garden and even enjoy the work of it - at least in the spring and fall when it's not really hot. This seems an extension of my work in the yard and gardens. Later on, look for some of my vegetables!
