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.
Quote for this post ... by William Wordsworth 1770 - 1850
"Primroses, the Spring may love them; summer knows but little of them."

Pears in the Sun
It was great to have sun all day yesterday. I painted three pears.
Quote for this post ... by Saint Francis of Assisi 1181 - 1126
"A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows."

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!
Quote for this post ... by Eugene Delacroix 1798 - 1863
"Everybody knows that yellow, orange, and red induce and represent ideas of joy and riches".

Snow, snow, and more snow ... so this post includes another snow painting. I like to walk by this view in Yarmouth to catch sight of the sunset - when it isn't snowing!
Quote for this post ... by Ralph Waldo Emerson 1803 - 1882
"Not less excellent, except for our less susceptibility in the afternoon, was the charm, last evening, of a January sunset ... the air had so much life and sweetness, that it was a pain to come within doors".
