Inspired by Denis Collette and a Field of Queen Annes Lace

1/8 Sheet

It's raining outside, and yesterday was full and late ... but thank heaven's, I'm feeling so much better. Still congested - but my head feels as though a fog is beginning to lift.

This painting was done over the weekend and was inspired by the work of Denis Collette (www.flickr.com/photos/deniscollette). THANK YOU AGAIN, Denis for your considerable and wonderful inspiration!
On a grey, rainy day, this brings me back to days of warm sunshine and fields of Queen Anne's Lace dotting my fields and roadsides! Seems a long time ago! LOL

Today we continue preparing for gardening classes - those eye-candy catalogues have been arriving non-stop since the beginning of the month and we are challenged to resist 'just one more plant!' LOL

Take care today -- dream sunshine and flowers!

Wow; how did you achieve these gorgeous colors? The flowers are light lights, lit from within and the other fall colors glow too. Such a beautiful painting overall but especially the colors!!!
Big hugs,
Lorraine
