Oil on Hardboard 6"x 6"

Today I looked at every single painting on your blog and am in awe at your wonderful talent. My favourites, although it's really hard to choose, are the hydrangea's and magnolia's. Todays hydrangea simply glows wherethe light strikes it. It didn't think it was possible, but your paintings are getting better all the time. There is a certain clarity and cnfidence about them that really makes them stand out. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing them here. You inspire me to try harder with my owm meager efforts at painting.

Classy and classic. The bottle has a retro feel in it's form, like an ink bottle for a fountain pen. Always inspiring and excellent!

Joan – Thank you for your comment.

Alvin – Thank you for the comment. You have a good eye. The little vessel is a vintage ink bottle I found at a flea market – where I find most of my subject matter.

What you have done with the light on this complex flower is so interesting--little facets sparkle with most of the flower in shadow--just beautiful. You also have a lot of detail in the water and ink jar and yet it does not detract at all from the flower. Very inspiring...
