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.

"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.

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".

Winter Evening

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".
