Nasturtium --- sold

Every morning the vesper sparrow and the warbling vireo have a singing contest - the former being most tenacious, and the latter winning in enthusiasm!  I couldn't wait any longer for the peonies to open so I painted the buds...  Sunday I noticed the nasturtium were starting to bloom so I was again sitting on the ground painting.  I prefer to paint standing up, your body doesn't get so sore and its easy to step back and squint for values, etc.  But when I paint small flowers I like to get right into them.

Dodie,

Thank you for painting, and letting me have this wonderful moment in nature. Your work just makes me smile. I love that that about your paintings. They just "scream" serenity and joy! I watch anxiously for each new addition to your site.
