                                                               8  x  10    Acrylic

This was a field of overgrown grasses but within it had these Iris flowers just above them. It made me think that even though things might be covered or surrounded sometimes beauty has a way of showing through any way.
I want to make a few more paintings of this field maybe a close up of those Irises.

" Sitting Pretty "

                                                        12  x  16    OIL

This is the second piece I did at the workshop of Janette Jones. Having done a lot of Faux-finish I am comfortable with making things look old but I still need to work on flowers and light. Oh well that's the beauty of doing this kind of work it is an everlasting discovery of what you can do and how to improve.
I really liked the colors of the old chair and the pot with these hydrangea.

On a side note I just had the pleasure to go see my brother and his wife in Vermont and I found out from her that hydrangea get their colors from the soil they are in and in Vermont where they live they are all white.
I'm so happy they are other kind of soils out there to make these flowers look so fabulous in different colors.
