Copper Kettle / Study

Color! The richness and variety of the orange in the kettle, fabric and flowers are complimented by the blue green of the foliage. To my eye this is irresistible!

Arranging the Bouquet

I get pretty excited with the enthusiasm of spring  energy - who can resist all that warm light, bright new blossoms,  fresh earth smells ?  I want that energy ! 
I cut some  branches from the very exuberant  pink and white flowering quince in the yard , and had to paint it before my curious cat deconstructed it !

Still Life

It's been stormy here the past few days, so I painted under the skylight and stayed dry and warm.
