Finally, our flowers are emerging from our late snows and cold. This iris posed for me in a syrup bottle once filled with our local sap flows.

I found this young flower lady along the roadside in Connecticut. She was opening up for a busy Saturday morning.

Still life set ups are always interesting for me. The daisy, though, came out of imagination.

Birthday

16×20″ oil paint on stretched canvas; one in a series of 6 celebration paintings destined for the entrance way to a banquet hall.

My last few months of painting daily have largely been on a project for a restaurant’s lobby to a large banquet hall. The owner asked for certain colors and for specific celebrations. I think I am near finished with “Birthday”. Each of the six paintings will carry the same basic colors and tones as requested. The photo does not pick up all the richness and clarity, even though I tried a couple of different photo shoots for it, but you can see the main effort.

This floral is the larger version of the previous post. I painted the centerpiece from a special dinner a couple of weeks ago.

This is a miniature piece of a large bouquet, which was a colorful display of Spring. Compare this to the previous post, and you will see what I did to finish.

I liked the contrast of the soft, organic flowers against the glass and pottery.

These lovely finches were part of a collection in a large aviary. From my photo, I put them into an outdoor setting.

This is a painting of the past, but fitting for the Springtime that we still await.
