Suddenly Spring Subjects!

I have a wonderful young girl (6th grade) who comes to my studio on Tuesday afternoons for an hour to "just paint." We usually work side by side, on the same subject. She uses acrylics and I use oils, and today our surface was gessoed watercolor paper. I set up this bunch of bright red Ranunculus on a low stool, with the idea of getting a little abstract and have some fun. To me, these flowers scream SPRING! and it was so fun!

Funny thing. The ranunculus is a medicinal plant that comes from the Latin word rana which means "frog"!??
