Garden Club Gift 
11 x 14 
Yesterday at our first Garden Club meeting of the season I was presented with these beautiful flowers in honor of my 60th birthday! I was so taken by the gesture that I came home, plunked them into an antique French wine cooler in my studio and did this painting in less than an hour. The all white flowers with just a touch of pink say everything about this time of year. Winter still holds court, but spring is not far away!    


  1. What a beautiful bouquet, and such nice friends to present you with it! I love the strong composition, and the gestural strokes on the petals. Welcome to the blogsphere - you're going to be a star!

  2. OK...this painting is BEAUTIFUL! An HOUR? FANTASTIC!
