My latest oil painting added to my etsy shop. These were tulips given to me for Mother's Day 2010. I planted them, the stalks came up early but no flowers this year. I spent the past few days working in my yard. The garden shops are amazing vast expanses of color. I could browse for hours. I wish I knew more about gardening...I finally settled on some things that I am not sure exactly what they are, I will photograph tomorrow. My neighbor Tracy gave me 7 rosebushes from the store that she works for, they were throwing them out because they were not selling well. My Iris plants I inherited from my sister and they are in full bloom and absolutely gorgeous, my hydraenga is ready to bloom. This is my favorite time of year. I love landscape painting, but in my heart I think I am a floral painter.
