Flowers are always right

I sit in my bright kitchen on one of the coldest nights
this winter.  Maybe last night was colder.  The kitchen
is yellow, and our new red door sports the huge heart
made from tissue paper peonies (once a much brighter
pink.)  The huge white double lilies feel like a celebration
all on their own in an antique china jug on the hutch.

And on the table in front of me lemons and oranges in
a glass bowl emanate cheer.  And beautiful yellow roses,
with random edges of a deep red sit at the end of the
table.  Happiness, and a love of nature sing out all
over this room.

Which brings me to these pansies.  These line drawing
and acrylic ink paintings all done on 5.5 x 8.5 watercolour
paper are available, and would cheer up someone's
wall.  Contact me if you're interested.  Meanwhile
enjoy whatever beauty you can see.

Have a loving your world day.

Thank you so much Laura,

I'm glad you like them. Pansies have a way with me. They are an
inspirational flower -- beautiful and resilient.
