10" x 10", oils

It was a no-brainer to continue yesterday's theme today. I just love these colors together. It snowed all day today outside my studio. I had my space heater cranked to high, my fleece socks and slippers on, and there I was painting Spring. I'm willing it to arrive.

I'm really picky about what I paint. What works best for me in this piece is the contrast between the lit and unlit centers of the two main flowers. I don't think this piece would be as interesting if the centers were both lit or unlit. Light is a funny thing. I love it when it works in my favor.
