I have always admired other painters versions of radishes. I always wanted to try a painting of these colorful veggies, and here it is!

This was my first attempt at roses. I thought it would be hard to paint, but I really tried to keep them simplified and I think it worked. Helps when you don't pressure yourself, I just thought I would try them and wouldn't worry about the outcome. Happy Mother's Day to all!

Spring is Here

10 x 12 Oil on canvas board

The lowly dandelion comes to life, still life that is. The bouquet of choice for toddlers to give to moms, but they really are a versatile plant, although pesty! I used to hunt the tender new greens with my father when I was little, and we would make salad with them, full of iron... good for you. My sister, the plant lover, has made dandelion wine, (I have never tasted it, so can't vouch), and she has roasted the roots and made coffee!! How's that for this pesky little ..... dare I say....weed! They don't last more that a few hours in a vase, (in case you had ideas for a centerpiece)!
