Let's join Bentley, my Studio Assistant, in the garden to look for Pansy inspirations for a little painting. I receive so many e-mails asking about Bentley smelling the flowers. He is a very curious Wheaten Terrier and his favorite thing to do in the garden is to "sniff" everything - especially the flowers!!! I walk him every day and he pulls on his leash to sniff the neighborhood flowers - one neighbor said " I think Bentley is stopping to smell the Roses."
I plant my Pansies in pots so I can move them around the garden to sunny areas.
I also like to plant them in the basket of my vintage bicycle and other unusual containers.
"Art In the Garden" - With so much inspiration I decided to paint 3 little pots of Pansies and add a bird nest.
Thank you for visiting me. I sincerely appreciate your e-mails, visits, comments and those of you who follow my blog. Please let me know if you have any questions. I will be on a short blog break working on some large coastal cottage paintings for the gallery and will be back Easter week.
Have a lovely week. Blessings, Erin
