The twigs in this bouquet were picked after a great and unexpected snowstorm downed many trees in the neighbourhood. Most were covered in yummy rounded buds just ready to burst into bloom or leaf so we put them in water and waited for the magic to begin..  A few daffodils from the garden brought colour and contrast to the rich texture and I moved into the kitchen to paint the whole bunch.  Sadly, they have passed now and  for the first time in my painting 'life' I am using photos to recapture the arrangement.  There are some larger paintings happening in the studio now that I think I am getting a grasp of the new medium. Will post them soon!

This is the latest post on the Daily Paintworks site.  Daffodils are popping up everywhere in the garden  Who knew I put so many bulbs in!  Painting is six inches by six inches in oil on a cradled panel.

Good Morning!
First day after the Vernal Equinox, sunshine and budding flowers.  A good day to start something new.   After poking around for a few hours on this program I suspect I am as far as I can get, so it's time to call in the professionals . Hang on as I get going on this project.
