Green Spring Bouquet

Today I challenged myself to just paint quickly. From the time I brought the bouquet of daffodils into my studio, to the time I cleaned my brushes and palette  when finished: 45 minutes. Is it perfection? No, and no painting will ever stand up to perfection, but it is my impression of these flowers in this moment, and it was a fun moment. That is enough.

Sentinel


Sentinel of spring outside my kitchen window.

Lemons on a Sunny Day

It was a beautiful weekend; a harbinger of spring. Sunny warm light streaming through the kitchen windows.
