It seems like it is always nice to paint some flowers when we are deep into Winter. Somehow it helps remind me of the hope of the Spring to come.

Painting is a way for me to express the beauty I see around me. I am most content when I am outside and able to be experiencing the beautiful and peace in our world. This beauty also inspires me to illustrated Bible verses that have been so helpful to me as I travel through life. My desire is that others will find encouragement and hope through these paintings in my collection titled The Picture of Scripture. I believe God’s word never comes back empty.

    Very lovely piece, Diane. I like the looseness & your use of complimentary colors. C’mon Spring!!!

    Instantly recognisable as lovely fragrant sweet peas, the essence of a warm summer garden. Yes, I love that yellow jug against the blue cloth, blue and yellow are always scrumptious together. Sweet painting Diane!

  • Thank you Ann for your great comment and fave. I am so pleased you enjoyed it. So glad you could smell the sweet peas! They are one of my favorites.

    What a gorgeous bowl of Sweetpeas Diane, I can almost smell them :-) Have you noticed how fleeting their perfume is? The first time you breathe them in, the smell is sublime but then you don’t anymore. The same happens with violets. It is very strange and your painting is very beautiful!

  • Hi Constance, thank you so for the wonderful comment. Sorry this is so late, somehow I missed your comment. Yes, sweetpeas do have a very fleeting perfume, but it is so wonderful when you catch it.
