Some March Color

"March Still Life"
14x11 oil on panel

Sometimes a painter just needs a little color!  We still have snow here, a LOT and today I just needed some color.  So, I went to the market to find some inspiration.  Look what I found!  As deep as my passion is for painting landscape, I LOVE painting flowers!  Obviously I'm drawn to their vibrant and rich color but I love their life and vitality and when I paint them I'm just happy!  Pretty good reason to paint flowers I'd say.  :)  This is what I did today in the studio.

A lovely painting Kami. I totally sympathize with you about the long drawn out winter! I've noticed many painters are painting flowers lately, longing for warmer times.

Thanks Darrell, yes I was thinking last night about how important color is to people, especially artists. I typically am drawn to more subtle quiet colors but I think after a while I need some chroma in my soul! Thanks for checking in and happy painting!
