Beautiful depiction of a fading flower Jane, most people would avoid a subject like this, but you manage to make it a successful painting.

I think this is an unusual painting, Jane. It's beautiful and sad at the same time.

Un acquerello delizioso nel tuo inconfondibile stile. Buona domenica Jane!

An artist can turn any subject into beauty!

So soft and subtle - absolutely beautiful! It reminds me of paintings of the Italian Renaissance.

Such a charming study Jane. This morning we have been treated to our first Iris opening out - have you ever painted one? I'd love to see how you would do it!

Mi familia tiene una casa de campo con un pequeño estanque con calas, siempre me han gustado. La tuya también.
