Mums The Word

Happy Sunday  

  We will be seeing Spring soon, now that March is here. And what better way to show it than with a painting of beautiful flowers in the sun.  A couple of weeks ago I bought a bunch of beautiful white mums.  I put these in a vase then outside for some nice photos of them in the sun.. I took some of them out of vase and put them beside it. I then put a sheet of white paper under vase and flowers for this composition.  I really liked the shadow formed by the back lite from the sun.  Shadows are done with Winsor Blue( Red Shade) and Perm Rose.
  It's pouring rain here today so this does lighten it up. I hope it lightens up your day as well.
  I appreciate all who come in and take a look. Please comment also.  So thankyou all


  1. Nora, this is simply lovely. Beautiful shadow work.

  2. Definitely a spring feel to this beauty, Nora. Love the shadows too and the daisies just have to be the sweetest of flowers.
