Exciting times

Flowers for my father

through glass because it's

The other day I got the promise of a commission, and 
when I mentioned it to a friend, the promise of another
commission.  The first one is to paint a flower garden,
and the second one is of a garden through a window.
All enticing, because I love flowers.

The first request may want something very realistic
in a Dutch Renaissance way -- that will be a challenge. 

So I found this drawing I did years ago when I was
painting flowers every day, and I worked primarily
in coloured pencil. And my style was more realistic.

In recent years I like a much looser impressionistic 

So I will let you know where this goes.

Have a loving your life day.

Hi Evelyn,

Thank you so much. Very different from my work today -- currently inspired by
