It's a day of rest today as I catch up on sleep, email, painting, chores. It seems the last several months have been an intense bevy of activity -- and I am apppreciating a much needed day of rest -- or at least - less frenzy! LOL

Thank you for all your kind wishes for my son and daughter-in-law!!

These bright flowers are based on a photo reference from Wet Canvas .... I love their peach hues and the vivid colors .... the work in natural light is less intense than this looks on my computer screen.

We're hoping for a bit of rain today ... and sending prayers to our mid-country states facing a terrible flood. Gracious, the weather continues to confound ...

Have a great day and week!

Another brilliant painting from you. Love the colors and you are a master of tone. BRAVA!

Oh the roses are gorgeous and what striking colors. And oh my those multi-colored leaves -- so beautifully painted and the multitude of shades is beautiful and sets off the peach shades perfectly.

I think you have surpassed your previous paintings -- maybe all that activity gave you an artistic break and your muse was ready to get back to work -- and how.

Big hugs,
Lorraine
