Spring is coming… isn’t it?

Flower pictures

I have started a few still life paintings of flowers, partly because I am going to donate one to the Sixty-five Roses Ball for Cystic Fibrosis in June (www.sixtyfiverosesball.org.uk)- roses, see what I did there?-, but mainly because we are all bored of waiting for the spring to arrive, and it is too cold even to contemplate going outside for landscape painting just yet. I am also revisiting a larger picture started last summer in Bodnant Gardens. At least it feels a bit like spring in my studio!
