Here's another of the Queen Anne's Lace series.  I remember it being windy the day I took the picture I've used here as reference for this work.  I have several more paintings ready, waiting to be completed.  I seem to shift to floral subjects when Spring time arrives.

I love creating floral portraits like this.  Pure color dancing! I bet there's a lady bug ready to land on the QALace any moment. Let your imagination go and add what you want.

I never tire of looking at QALace.  Or....Flowers in general.  I've been looking through seed catalogs....dreaming!  I have plenty of perennials in my yard so I don't need more plants.  Just focusing on veggie garden.  I DO like the colors here.  The blues are some of my favorite.
