On my easel today is a painting of Begonias, stirred into action by the Spring fever I’m feeling. 6″x6″ stretch Gallery Wrap Canvas.
One thing I look forward to every Spring is my first trip to Medary Acres, our local Nursery. This is where I went looking for my subject.
Posing with my subject is a persistent Merlin the Cat. I’ve just decided he should be the star of a new painting, coming soon!
Terrific.I love the white flowing in and through.
Thanks! That’s what I enjoy about painting flowers!

BEGONIAS WITH CAT—BETTER YET!
Strong composition; great colour…what a wonderful painting!
Forgot to say: I love the lively brushstrokes and how you can see the textural quality of the paint! Lovely! 🙂
Thanks! I like to slop it on, it’s more fun and less work! ;D
He should be! I’m almost ready to draw or paint him myself! Beautiful flowers too.
It will be a challenge!
