Every Spring I get in the mood to paint flowers. These Black Eyed Susans  grow  on my brother and sister in laws farm in West Virginia, South of Morgantown.






This painting was another class demonstration. The challenge of this painting for me was to capture the delicate nature of these blossoms. It would be very easy to be too heavy handed and lose the peace and quiet that these wonders inspire me to.  I think in the end that it worked.

 

 








These tulips were the subject of a class demon-stration at the Christy House. It is one of those quick sketches where everything worked well for me. 

This is a perfect piece for blessing that small wall area with some color and imagination.
