Windowsill


Windowsill

I am constantly intrigued with flowerpots, especially those on beautifully-foliaged windowsills. I found this photo on Wet Canvas and wanted to paint it as an expression of one of my favorite views.

This is such a nice view. I also enjoy passing by windowsills with boxes and pots and elegant boxwood...
I have missed many posts again...from your bright trees, your plein air sketching and your boulders to this delightful, bright sunny windowsill; all your colourful paintings bringing a bit of cheer to a grey day here in France...bof, these grey days!!

There's so much to see and enjoy in this one -- the window, the ledge, all the foliage -- a lot and well done! And the various flower pots. How nice for someone to give this "gift" to others instead of keeping it all inside -- and a double gift that you can recreate it for us.
Hugs,
Lorraine

Why is it that a grouping of flower pots are/is so cheerful to us viewers? I also love them all to be different .. different shapes with different flowers.

Once again your post is a pretty one.

I love windows full of plants, too. This is really well done!
