Jane - These are so lovely. I envy your ability to loosely paint...it's so full of interest. It especially works with the soft blossoms.

You know, I have to agree with Irna. These are breathing, that is such a great way of looking at them. They are also a moment's glimpse of the flower, the way we enjoy a bowl of tulips on the table that adds atmosphere without demanding full attention.

Thanks for your comment, Jane, on my copper painting. Copper is so attractive...I think its nice architecturally and in smaller functional pieces because it is somehow more elemental and malleable than steel or aluminum. It is so responsive to the elements and protects itself with patina. I love a great copper (or zinc) roof! Sadly so rare these days.

What a springtime welcome your flowers bring. Love the crocus and the pinks too. So exquisite.
