Last daffodil of the day.

Time to clean my brushes. Time to start working on dinner. At least the sun is out.


I'm trying to feel spring. Most of our daffodils were covered with snow today. When I pick a subject, I work it over and over. It's the only way.

Getting ready for National Arboretum
Bonsai Festival in Spring. Plus I just love tulips. They make me smile.

So where is it? Spring? I am looking at six inches of snow. I painted this in hopes that the sun would come out and my flowers would start to grow.


I loved painting these cranes. I was lucky to see them in person many years ago in Japan. They were magnificent. They loved to dance.

Just something I have been working on.  This is one of a small group of cranes I have been painting.
