I love the shop where I buy my flowers.  When I'm
not painting portraits or landscapes I paint a lot of
flowers, both in still life settings and on their own.
The flower store I love in Toronto, is Yang's  at
132 Avenue Road where I buy so many flowers
for my paintings, that we have come to know one
another, and are friends.
My painting goes way up on the wall for now at
Yang's Flowers
Today my dear friends there put one of my paintings
on their wall, and asked for a bigger one to display
and sell.  If you are interested in picking up a flower
painting by me, drop into their store and check
it out.  Ask for Lyn, Annie or Min, and they will
either sell you the painting that's there now on the
spot, or contact me for you, or give you my card so
you can call me yourself.
The store is packed with spring flowers

Woo Hoo.  I'm posting the next stage on the little
Tulip painting tonight.

Have a loving-the-people-who-sell-your-flowers day.
