On the day I began this painting, I brought my painting materials, the canvas, and a big easel (the painting is 8 feet long....) out into the garden to make the preliminary placement of flowers and colors from the border of Peonies, Iris, and poppies in the garden. Joan, one of our wonderful neighbors at that time, came dashing over to see what I was doing. We had a great chat that day and she enjoyed watching the progress of the painting.
When I completed it, I brought it into the kitchen where my Mother who was partially blind could enjoy the colors. It still hangs here in the kitchen even though Mother is no longer here.
This week, it will take a trip to the studio to be on view when guests come on Thursday.

Thank you for your comments and visiting my newly created blog.

Here are some links that may give you some insight. I am working on new ones,

I need to put up more, and will shortly. I do thank you for your interest, time and consideration.

This is all new to me, but I am enjoying it so far. The big problem is time, financing the work and finding a new job, long story there.

Please keep in touch.
