    1. Thank you, Helen. Flowers for Easter is a tradition isn't it?
      Your Petaluma landscape has wonderful shapes and makes a great abstract.

  7. What a great combination of flowers, Julie. Those calla lilies look like they belong in the midst of the forsythia. (I have a huge forsythia bush outside my kitchen window and it isn't one of my favorites...) Such a beautiful painting! Happy Easter to you, Julie, and I so hope that you are feeling better and better.

    1. Forsythia is so graceful when cut, but a whole bush of it can be overpowering because it is not graceful like some flowering types. All the yellows of spring sing out to me - especially against a blue sky or next to a blue or purple plant.
      Your bird is really lovely - birds, nests and feathers really speak to me so it is a winner in every way.
      Still stressed.

  11. Once again we're in sinc. I've been pawing through photos of Callas for a couple of days because I have a commission based on another large work of mine, but I want to give it a twist. I absolutely love your colours and the touches of forsythia always remind me of my father who had a beautiful bush in his garden. BTW I haven't forgotten you. I've just been running waaaay behind. Will get back ASAP :)

      Love the beautiful nude back in your painting. I really admire how you capture a pose so well with minimal strokes.

  12. Lovely painting of Spring. (Would be nice if the forsythia would bloom around here. So far just crocuses). Nice floral combination.
