Sunshine and Flowers

“What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.” ~ Joseph Addison

I am also painting outside the library from 10:00 a.m. to noon each Tuesday in June.

  1. Flowers on the Step – “The strong sunlight glares out the pale greens  but cannot overpower the bursts of red overflowing the steps and windowboxes.”
  2. Tina and the Bog – “Grampy has always believed that children should grow just like wildflowers along the waterside.”
  3. Brown Eyed Susans – “They wanted roses in their flower garden, but I have always been a brown-eyed Susan.”
  4. Plumbago Blue – “Friendly clusters of flowers dancing in the sun inspired by a gentle breeze.”
  5. Corley’s Pineapple Door – “I love the glass in this festive harvest painting in the way the reflections and fruit brighten the archway.”
  6. Star Flower – “Peeking out of the greenery to say ‘Hello’ to the sun”
  7. Ranch Hand’s Cigarette Break – “This is one of my favorites. He enjoys the quiet solitude of his quick break in the field along the fence line he is mending.”
  8. Texas Bluebonnets – “Everything is bigger in Texas, except the lupines.”
  9. The High Side of Grampy’s Canoe – “When Grampy got in, her end of the canoe rose up and she enjoyed learning to fish from him while sitting on the high side.”
  10. Barker’s Dog – “Is this your chair?”
  11. Small Town Tall Spires – “Sharp blues contrasting against the brightly lit white church caused my eyes and thoughts to move upward.”
  12. Bougainvillea Reds – “I wanted to paint this just for the pleasure of looking at them longer.”
  13. Yellow Weeds – “Sun lit up these bright yellow flowers and created a vivid contrast to the approaching storm.”
  14. Home of the Giant Cookie – “Despite their famous fruitcake and their quaint little 10 cent cup of coffee, the cookies at Collin Street Bakery are magnified in my son’s eyes.”

    I am honored that my “Sunshine and Flowers” watercolors were selected for exhibition at the Citrus County Library – Lakes Region branch of Inverness, Florida. This exhibition will be on display in the Lakes Region library from June 1st to July 31st, 2015. The Sunshine and Flowers Watercolors will also be on display at the Homosassa Branch of the Citrus County Library System from August 1st to September 30th.
