Sunflowers, Roses and Pansies =A New Painting

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 the inspirations for my art.  Our freezing weather left as quickly as it came to Southern California - today the sky is blue - the sun is shining and it is 70 degrees.
 Our gardener trimmed back the Iceberg Roses and brought me a big bucket of blooms that he picked before trimming.

                                           Flowers - here - there- everywhere.

                                    I bought several types of Sunflowers at the market today.












                                 The last of the white Iceberg Roses and the Winter Pansies that are in bloom.







Bentley, my Studio Assistant, is checking out the Pansies for a new painting!







I gathered the bird cloche and  several of my favorite props along with the Roses, Sunflowers and Pansies for a new "dreaming of Spring"  painting.







                                                            "Art in the Garden"







Thank you for stopping by.  I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits, e-mails, comments and those who follow my blog.

Have a lovely week,  Blessings, Erin

The flowers both live and in your painting are lovely, Erin. Oh, how I long for a spring garden. Give sweet Bentley a hug for me. He's such a good studio assistant. Hugs, Nancy

My garden is a bit torn up right now so seeing all your beautiful flowers is a welcome treat.

Happy New Year

Seeing your lovely garden flowers and joyful flower paintings, has kept this chilled to bone Northeasterner sane! Your warm welcome at every new encounter, and your precious, positive sharing of faith always stay with me for a long time. Thank you for sharing them all! I pray your blessings are bountiful in 2015.

Hi Erin Your blog looks beautiful. I don't know when you added the painting on the sidebar but I love it! It is quite cold here today so it is a treat to see your assistant Bentley wandering in the garden. He is such a good assistant!! I love the new painting.
Hope you have a lovely weekend.
