Viola Cornuta

oil on canvas board 5"x7"

Ces petites fleurs timides fleurissent tout au long de l’hiver, il faut se pencher pour les voir dans l’herbe qu’il va falloir tondre bientôt.
Those little shy flowers last the whole winter, you have to bent to see them in the grass I am going to cut very soon.
This painting, for once, was not made for a challenge, I suppose I need a change, and it’s one,  maybe,  the first time I used a painting knife, it was a start, and a nice experience.Usually I like the details, here I was obliged to leave them, regarding the small size of my painting.

Got a light?

oil on canvas board 6"x6"
 This was painted for DPW challenge this week, we were allowed to use only 2 colors, burnt sienna, ultramarine + white.
Those days, with the onterdiction to smoke, I find strange when I see people smoking, although I used to smoke myself, a long time ago.I am so glad to be delivered from this funest habit!

Do you like fuchsias?

I am aware I have no plant of fuchsia in my garden, although I like them, their little bells; so I am planning to grow them in April, I have to find a place in the half shade.
This was painted for Artistic sentiments, and will be sent by mail to a friend of mine, her birthday is the 28th of this month, she likes flowers.

The sky has been grey and low for several days now, the mood is easily gloomy, so friends were welcome!
