Having been pleasantly surprised by how the background to this blog looks now that it is framed, I decided to attempt another floral painting. Many of the plants that I have in my garden have interesting foliage, I’m not really a ‘flower’ kind of girl. That said, since I’ve been learning to paint (all of 7 months), I’ve been taking much more of an interest in the colours, shapes and patterns that I see all around me, this includes the few flowering plants that I have in my garden. This painting represents the hellebore plant that I have next to the steps in my front garden. The flower bed is higher than the path to my front door which affords me a gorgeous view of this beautiful flower each time I come home:
I know that this painting is not ‘botanically’ accurate, far from it in fact, but it does make me smile and it reminds me that Spring is just around the corner. If one of my paintings can do that for me then I’d class it as a success!
