Little Umbrella Flowers

"Little Umbrella Flowers"

I am not sure what the exact name of these little flowers is.  I think they are called Snow Drops or Dew Drops.  They are so cute though and they are very tiny and delicate looking.  They are the first top pop up in my winter garden. They sure make me feel good on a gloomy day.

Spring Preview

" Spring Preview"

Even though I live in California, it has been raining a lot and we are experiencing pretty cold temperatures we are not use to.  Lots of whining going on from us lightweights.  It's suppose to be cold and rainy, it's January! Then I go to the grocery store and see all the little promises of spring popping up in the floral department.  I love how cute and fresh the Dutch Irises are, inspiring everyone who peeks at them to yearn for Spring.

Pink and Red

"Pink and Red, Valentine Colors"

I can't help myself, I have painted Gerber daisies so many times.  When I see flowers in these colors and it's January, and I'm looking forward to the love day, well they get painted, again ; )

Bin There

"Bin There"

I owe a lot to the local farmer's market, all of the shapes and colors are just there for the taking. I get so inspired  hanging out with farmers. I was busy this weekend painting some other veggies that I am taking to a local winery for sale, Solis Winery in Gilroy.  They know their customers  like to taste and people who like to taste like to cook, so they asked me to paint some foodie paintings, which I love to do! Will post them in the next couple of days.
