Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Small Floral Still Life, "Garden Treasures" , 8x10 Still Life SOLD

I have been doing lots of florals lately.  It seems I cycle in my work, doing several abstracts, or seascapes or landscapes, until, finally, something else inspires me and I move to another subject.  Probably, because of spring and summer, flowers have my attention now.


Last winter, we purchased a vacation condo in Waynesville, NC, smack in the middle of the Smoky Mountains.  When we returned in the spring, imagine my surprise, to find we had also acquired a flourishing flower garden.  I love flowers, but I did not imagine my time there being spent pulling weeds and deadheading!  As my husband says, "it is what it is" so when we return there soon, gardening tools will be included in our luggage.

The up side of the story, is the pleasure I get from the gorgeous flowers.  Each time we visit, a new surprise awaits.  We have ferns and dogwood, Japanese maple, lily,bleeding heart  and roses.  I cannot wait to see what will be in bloom on my next trip.

Thanks for reading my blog today!
