Since it is a rainy day I am posting a painting that I did of brightly colored primrose. I purchased a German Primrose plant at Estabrooks and worked on a close-up focus of a few blossoms and a bit of foliage.

Pears in the Sun

It was great to have sun all day yesterday. I painted three pears.

Painting Challenge - Color

After a long white winter I am looking for colorful subjects to paint. I am spending the month of March completing as many fruit, flower, and veggie paintings as possible. The grocery store had a great sale last week on red, orange, and yellow peppers so I painted peppers!

"Everybody knows that yellow, orange, and red induce and represent ideas of joy and riches".
