Painting Sunflowers and A little Green Chair

Welcome.  I am so happy that you stopped by.  My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax with a cup of tea while I share with you the inspirations for my art.  My art is  inspired by God's beautiful creations and the simple and everyday beauty of flowers.  A bouquet of Sunflowers purchased from the market placed in an old rusty red watering can always makes  me smile.

                       Let's join Bentley, my Studio Assistant, to see what we can find to paint.


                                                                 Finding Inspiration . . . . . .




The cheerful Sunflowers in rusty red watering can are just waiting to be painted.


Here . . . . There . . . .



Everywhere . . . . .





I liked how the red watering can looked on the green chair and ended up painting them - added a little bird for an additional garden touch.



"Let your good spirit lead me on a level path." Psalm 143:10


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

Have a lovely week.  Blessings, Erin

Your paintings are very cheerful, and your garden and patio so pretty in the way you arrange bouquets, signs, chairs and sometimes, Bentley. If it is possible to arrange a dog :)

It looks like it would be very easy to get inspired in that beautiful garden of yours! Love your newest painting. I'm a sucker for watering cans, especially red ones!

..........so pretty Erin! I've never really thought of adding red accents in my garden (have them in the kitchen) but love them here. The sunflowers are stunning - hoping I get some volunteers from the dropped birdseed again this year - and that adorable Bentley is more handsome than ever, if that's possible!

Lovely, lovely painting.

Happy day dear.
