It’s been a little while since I’ve painted some small pieces and I generally always feel inspired when Spring brings us such lovely flowers to work with.

This Auricula was a lucky garden center find – they have been scarce for a few years; apparently growing conditions have not been good.

And this one is the product of my own endeavours in the garden, having cultivated a small Spring flower patch over the last few years. This year it’s been at it’s best with the addition last year of the Snakeskin Fritillary’s.

I’ve wanted to try and paint them for a while – they were deceptively difficult but I enjoyed the challenge. Now I’m looking forward to seeing what May brings to paint.

The garden still has some treasures to be found worth painting – I have left flowers to go to seed so that there are interesting seed heads, the ornamental quince has fruited and the Marigolds soldier on regardless and all of these make lovely things to paint on this sunny day.

Valentines Day aside, we all need a reminder of this. xxx

This painting has slipped through my blogging net!

I have forgotten to show you this orange posy of garden flowers collected and painted when summer was at its height.

I grew Marigold’s for the first time this year and I’m undecided about them – they look gorgeous, giving a pop of colour to the garden but they smell weird and die quickly once picked for the house.

Nasturtiums are a favourite to paint and grow. Grey, orange and pink are my current colour crushes. Throw in an Anthropologie mug and a genuine vintage sheet (from my childhood bed no less ! ) and I hope the result is a happy and bright painting.
