Garden Stairs

I recently went to my friend's backyard. She has been cultivating azaleas for many years and the yard is gorgeous in the spring. There are many paths and steps to wander and I was anxious to paint the scene.

Basket of Lilacs

Lilacs are a favorite of mine and I love the pay of light on these.I seem to like close up views of things.Maybe that is due to my nearsightedness!

Farmer's Market

I went to a Farmer's Market in a small town in Maine.this woman was selling flowers from her garden. I don't know why I attempted to add the truck in the background-- I have painted very few vehicles. I do think it turned out okay!

Geraniums

This was a potted plant that was mainly geraniums. It had just enough of other plants added to make it more interesting. I would like to try it again with oils.
