Sunflowers and Foxgloves

Welcome. I am so happy that you stopped by. My garden gate is always open for you to come and and sit and relax with a cup of tea while I share with you the inspirations for my art. The Foxgloves are in full bloom this time of year and I am painting a large painting with Foxgloves and Sunflowers. The painting is not finished so I thought I would share another large painting with you this week.




Let's join Bentley, My Studio Assistant, to look for inspiration.









The gate leads to a small garden off my kitchen where I grow herbs.





This is an older painting with Sunflowers and Foxgloves and is still one of my favorites. The new painting will also have Sunflowers and Foxgloves.








Finding inspiration . . . .

Wishing you Blessings and a Joyful and Happy Mother's Day



Thank you for stopping by. I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits, comments, e-mails and those who follow my blog. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special.



Have a lovely week. Blessings, Erin

This is a beautiful post. I like sunflowers and foxgloves, though they bloom lately here in the region of Paris (June-July) and Mother day is May 29 and ...I love to see Bentley watching the sunflowers !
I like very much the "old" painting. Cannot wait to see the new one.

I wish you a beautiful weekend.
Keep painting and be happy.

Blessings.
