Of course, you can paint your birthday cards for your friends too.
Here is a painting i did as a Christmas present for a gardening friend who loves tulips.
Just ask the nursery for sicilian Garlic, you two as the name is changing. Summer has indeed arrived when you salivate every time you pass your first peach, like I am doing. It is a Peregrine peach so gets red all over.
Artjak, i tend to paint any surface that looks boring too! I do love your work.
Thank you all so much. This is what i wanted - contributions to the forum that show how much plant life influences the creative parts of our life. I write poems inspired by my gardening and "walks on the wild side". I should have included poetry writing too - who does not quote a "Host of golden daffodils" whenever they mention Wordsworth? So do not be surprised to see some poetry on this thread. I love the delicacy of Busy-Lizzie's painting.
A deutzia gracilis would be lovely. Flowering now and smells great.
I started a new thread today called "Painting what you've grown".Looking forward to seeing some art work.
I know there are as the thread i started on June1st called Summer has arrived has mention of them. All you need to do is a line a day, Sue. Gardeners have to be observant and that goes for art too.
Celebration in acrylic on my lounge wall - quite a big picture.
May Day in my garden - acrylic.
