Lilies and Delphiniums

Lilies and Delphiniums, plein air oil painting, 8 x 10"
I did this yesterday in my garden, which is so lovely at this time of year. All the work planting flowers with contrasting colours is really paying off. I haven't painted my garden 'en plein aire' very often, but everytime I have, it has been a real joy. Usually I see work to do, but sometimes I just sit amazed at the beauty and feel the urge to get out my paints and express it.

Hi Sharon,

Glad to hear you had a great vacation in Ontario. I am enjoying your new blog a great deal. Keeps me inspired! :-)

I expect to be moving about 2 hours NE of here (to Mirror, a hamlet between Lacombe and Stettler) at the end of September. Lovely landscape, with lakes nearby. Perhaps I could scope out the environment for a class field-trip next spring?
