It felt pretty great to finally have enough flowers in the garden to create a bouquet, but they flopped over almost immediately. The bleeding hearts were mere shoots a few days ago, and now they’re almost past their prime. Same with the tulips. That’s what happens when you have a cold spring and summer descends quickly and with no warning. I’m not complaining though. It was pretty great to plunk these in a vase and paint them from a chair in the backyard, watching them shift gently in the wind. After that long period of confinement it was worth waiting for, and made the painting process all that much more sweet.

    Good Evening dear friend Shari,

    I love that transparent jar you have drawn which rightly reflects a glass jar filled with wonderful colorful flowers.



  6. Beautiful Bouquet, you are really having fun with the neutral greys, also good job on the transparentness of the vase.
