violets



Don't you love them? They're everywhere this time of year. And they look so happy. One section of our new backyard lawn contains more violets than grass. I don't really mind.

I'm sure you can guess what came next.











(Could not resist a shiny lampshade studio selfie).

The finished painting is sweet and makes me happy. Just like the real flowers.




I cannot believe that May is almost over. How did it go by so fast?

  2. I hope you'll publish a book of your botanical paintings one day - maybe an herbal or Language of Flowers - so lovely.
