I adore flowers. I love having them in my house. They make me happy. Arranging a lovely bouquet is one of my greatest small pleasures.

Somehow I never paint flowers - not much anyway. Decided to try a little bouquet of roses. It's not quite finished. Needs a shot of light on the vase - have to wait until the paint drys. Here's what's
happened so far ...

I think perhaps it also needs a couple of petals at the bottom of the vase.

Thanks for dropping by.  I'll get around to see you soon.  Late afternoon seems to be Sangria time now - sitting in the sun.  It warms up a bit then.  See you there - on the terrace.

“If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for a moment.”
― Georgia O'Keeffe



  1. What a beautiful bouquet Donna! Thay look lovely as all your paintings do. ~Diane

  2. Your roses are beautiful! Glad your weather is warm enough for a sangria in the sun. It was sunny here, too, but not warm enough to sit outside! Hugs, Valerie

  3. Looking pretty good I would say - looking forward to seeing the finished product.

  4. How I wish I was on your terrace the promise of beautiful art fabulous company and a glass or two of sangria in the sun ……magical. Thanks for sharing this beautiful boquet with us it really is such a happy piece.


  5. Save me a chair, Donna. I could use some sangria sitting in the sun with you.

  6. Gorgeous painting, Donna! Beautiful colours, makes me feel happy :)
